A Note About Voting Rights
IJC was incorporated, Indiana law specified that for any IJC election
to be legal, a quorum (more than half) of our voting members must cast
ballots. Because of the nature of our membership, we believed
that this would not be possible if all of our members were "voting
We therefore established two kinds of memberships; voting and
non-voting. Voting members must sign the "Waiver & Proxy"
form which gives the existing Board of Directors the proxy of any voting member who chooses not to cast a ballot.
Our constitution requires the board to cast all proxy ballots for
candidates in the same proportion as the ballots cast by the voting
members who did participate. In this way, we satisfy the
requirements of the law.
Signing the "Waiver & Proxy" allows a member to hold an IJC office,
stand for election to the Board of Directors, and to vote in elections.
These privileges are not available to non-voting members.
