Hi Board,

Tyler suggested using a web form to collect the board election votes for 
this election. One of the key benefit is that this form would also serve 
to collect updated charter member contact information. With 100 charter 
members, automating this process as much as possible can save lots of time.

We have the form setup on surveymonkey.com, it is private and very clear 
in my opinion, each charter member would receive a personal email with 
their own private link to vote. I think it would be a great way to go. 
For this election we would also keep the ability to vote via email (the 
old way), so charter members would have two options for voting: the web 
form or email.

Does anyone see a problem with this approach?

If there are no objections from board members in the next 2 days then we 
will go ahead for the vote that is due to start on Thursday with two 
options for voting: web form or email.
