Voting through internet (e-voting)
Ours is a maintenance co-operative society with 170 members and is located at Agalambe, Tal: Haveli, Pune. Our members are staying at different locations. Many of them cannot attend AGM personally. Thus they desire to implement voting through internet (e-voting) for passing the resolutions for various issues instead of being present at AGM / EOGM. They also desire the same method for society elections.
We have following queries regarding the above said issues –
If the managing committee implements the e-voting platform for members and conducts e-voting for any particular resolution, then can we legally add this e-voting count to the physical vote count at AGM / EOGM for that particular resolution to pass the same?
If the managing committee implements the e-voting platform for members and conducts e-voting for MC elections as well, then can we legally add this e-voting count to the physical vote count at the actual election?
We request you to give your opinion so that we can fulfil the requirement of the members without any violation of cooperative law if possible.
