change of bi-law (condo)Aug 24, 2019

We are in the midst of changing our one of our bi-laws and need 66 2/3 of the residents' votes. Do we have an obligation to protect the privacy of those residents who do not wish to vote?

Change of by law vote - Marty Aug 25, 2019

I think you absolutely have to respect their privacy. Those who don’t wish to vote means they are a no vote and you need 2/3 approval to amend the by law.

Are you trying to embarrass or identify them to other voters simply because they won’t support the by law amendment? That’s what it sounds like to me.

Hope I’m mistaken.

Change of By-law - NYC Aug 28, 2019

what you are asking is can you shame/bully people into voting. Absolutely not.

Sounds like harassment to me and
In New York bullying is defined as threats, intimidation or abuse.

Have you considered sending detailed Information to all shareholders, which by-laws you want to change, the reasons and the benefits?
