Co-cohousing friends: Here's a question I haven't seen addressed in our consensus resources (Butler and Schaub). We are selecting officers and have multiple candidates for two positions. How might the consensus process work in this situation? In Quaker circles, the problem is avoided by having a Nominating Committee select one name per position to present to the consenting body. Tentatively, we are asking candidates to present themselves and their ideas to the group, and thinking about some straw secret ballots and discussion that might cause some candidates to withdraw. This seems awkward, and seems to rule out Gradients of Agreement that may, in some cases, cause some members to choose the extreme position of not consenting to an individual. What have others done?
