I think it's the expectation (based on experience) that these are just
a formality and do not produce actual work. I was quite surprised the
meeting was quorate to begin with, and I can totally understand why
people would be upset.
However, going forward, it is easy to make it clear that these
meetings are more than a formality and that real decisions may be
made. If such an expectation is given, and appropriate arrangements
made to announce the meetings and hold them at relatively convenient
times, I don't see why that system would cause more frustration.
The real issue with runoff elections is that it's enough of an ordeal
to get people to vote a single time. It seems like it would be a large
burden to have to immediately repeat the process sometimes. Of course,
if it's what is desired, we can certainly do it in the future.
