POA BY-LAWS – ARTICLE VIII – Board of Directors Election Process

Section 7 – Any member, in good standing, shall have the right to request a recount of the ballots returned. That request must be made in writing within three (3) working days after the election date. The recount will be done by an outside firm selected by the GM, at the expense of the individual requesting the recount. An upfront fee must be paid by the requesting member to cover all costs to perform the recount at a charge to be determined by the chosen firm. If the recount changes the outcome of the election, the member will be reimbursed all fees paid. 


Congratulations to the newly elected board members. We look forward to a positive future for Hot Springs Village. Thank you to everyone who ran, and also much thanks to the property owners who voted.

We reached out to Board Director Mark Quinton, who said, “I’m grateful for the support of our community by being reelected to the Board. I’m ready to continue to serve this community as your board representative. Thank you for your vote.”
