As I have already responded, the lack of people coming forward is not the issue I am trying to deal with by my suggstion of not enforcing a ballot whose result is already known. Apart from the fact that fewer people offering to stand will almost certainly result in additional occasions where there are no more nominees than are required to exactly fill the posts up for election, the two are entirely separate. Persuading people to stand is a matter of advertising and persuasion whereas the removal of un-necessary ballots is a constitutional matter. Hopefully, a resolution to change the Constitution in this way can be presented to the next AGM (I assume this is the way to do it) and be voted through very rapidly as it is surely simply common sense to not require an essentially pointless exercise.
