It wasn’t the issue of cost that was the reason for my suggestion but rather the pointlessness of holding a ballot whose outcome is already known. The steady decrease in numbers of members putting themselves forward for offices and for Council is indeed worrying but is really an issue peripheral to my suggestion. I would be very happy to see ballots having to be held because so many nominations had been received but as that does not seem to be the case at present I still believe that my suggestion would be a worthwhile amendment to the Constitution, and maybe the corollary (to publish interim lists of nominees) might just encourage more people to put themselves forward when they see they might just have a sensible chance of being elected due to the low number of current nominations. Worth a try, surely?
