Dear Mister Condo,
Mister Condo replies:
B.S., proxy votes are quite common and many associations rely on folks voting by proxy in order for the association to conduct its business. That being said, every association is subject to its own rules on proxy voting as well as any state laws that outline the rules for proxy voting. Without seeing you governance documents, I can’t give you a useful answer as to the exact procedures at your association. You will need to review the documents to see what it says about proxy voting. Additionally, I can’t tell you what your state laws may or may not say on the subject, so you may need to consult with an attorney who specializes in community association law in your state for an opinion on what the state laws say about proxy voting in your state. I have answered a similar question for another reader and I include a bit on how it works in my home state of Connecticut.

All the best!
