East Wind Democracy Proposal
DEMOCRACY EXPERIMENT I
June 1977-December 1977
*All full members attending a planners meeting have one full vote.
*Provisional members have fractions of votes; 2 mo. Residence and 6 meetings attended-1/4 vote, 4 mo. Residence and 12 meetings attended-1/2 vote.
*These votes may be cast by the person coself or by a proxy of their choosing.
*Proxies may be any person who is a full member or the Board of Planners.
*No proxy, except for the Board of Planners, may represent more than 1/3 of the total votes.
*A quorum is necessary for the membership to have a vote, and representation of 2/3 of the votes will constitute a quorum.
*Decisions will be decided by a majority of the quorum.
*The Board of Planners will act as an advisory board by being the first to cast their votes.
*The Board of Planners will be the only people who receive labor credit for community meetings.
*During emergencies or when there is no quorum, Planners will make decisions by voting.
*Managers, Planners and Stand-ins are appointed by the Planners in private session.
We held two meetings without a board of planners and two meetings without quorum. One meeting didn't happen because of the lack of both a board and a quorum.
We made 202 decisions.
93 decisions were made by voice-vote (46%)
The Planners were overridden by proxy democracy 11 times (5.4%)
People present voted different than the Planners 15 times (7.4%)
People present voted different than the proxy democracy 9 times (4%)
The average attendance for all recorded votes was 41%
