Date legality

I am on a condo board and we allow
proxy votes as part of our annual
election. We are in Massachusetts but
an owner living in Greece signed with
European date 8/10/2016 when we
mean October 8th. Should this be
ruled valid or invalid?

Asked on October 8, 2016 under Business Law, Massachusetts

The law allows you to write the date either way: there is nothing illegal or invalid under the law generally to date a document that way. Your associations/community's rules or bylaws could require dating in one format or another; but if they don't put an restrictions on it, the owner could legally date it the way he did.
