Re: GNOME Board of Directors Foundation Elections Spring 2009 - Preliminary results

Is it legal according to California law that the membership committee can decide the results?

Not sure if there is a way in the Charter to trigger a re-vote in case of dispute.

The way forward seems clear to me - the membership committee decides what counting method will be used, announces it, and we count the election according to that means. There doesn't need to be a crisis here.

Deciding on the correct method after the elections seems a bit off to me.  A member who voted should know exactly how their vote is going to be counted before the ballot is cast.  If different methods reach different conclusions then that is a crisis because the membership committee would be free to choose the one which fits their agenda the most (not that I feel there is an agenda but the possibility leaves doubt on the validity of the results).
