Resolution to permit electronic elections

Whereas the Senate Bylaws require that elections be held by "secret written ballot"; and

Whereas the term "written" is ambiguous as to whether electronic ballots are permitted; and

Whereas secure electronic voting can fill the intended function of a secret written ballot;

Therefore be it resolved, that;

The Senate understands the Bylaws as permitting secure electronic votes as a form of secret written ballots; and

The Senate authorizes the Committee on Faculty Service to conduct elections electronically; and

The Senate urges the Committee on Administration and Budget to propose a revision to the Bylaws amending "secret written ballot" so that electronic voting is unambiguously permitted.
