Here is how it is done. Remember this wont effect next fall unless the ADs all pressure the state to switch what they decided which I have never seen before. ARTICLE VI: AMENDMENTS Section 1: PROVISION FOR AMENDMENTS a. The Constitution of this Association may be amended by a two-thirds majority of schools voting and the By-Laws by a majority of those voting provided the proposed amendment has been submitted to the Executive Director and received at the MSHSAA office no later than December 15 (see also Section 3 for procedures). The Executive Director shall submit all proposed amendments to member schools no later than the first Monday in April. Ballots shall be distributed to all member schools, with each member school having one vote. The school’s ballot to be official must be signed by the principal or superintendent of the school when paper ballots are sent via the mail or faxed. The principal or superintendent’s official log-in will be captured when the ballots are returned electronically. Ballots shall be received at the MSHSAA office no later than May 1. The Executive Director in the presence of at least one witness, shall tabulate the CONSTITUTION votes when paper ballots are being received. The results of the election shall be officially approved at the next meeting of the Board of Directors and such changes as have been adopted will be incorporated in the Constitution and By-Laws the following July 1 unless the effective date is specified in the amendments. b. When circumstances in the judgment of the Board of Directors warrant it, the Board is authorized to call a special election to amend the Constitution or By-Laws. Notice of a special election shall be distributed to member schools 30 days in advance of the date the ballot will be distributed to the membership.
