Not always, but usually. I think the nominating committee just produces one candidate each year.

The last contested election I remember was when Bob Miccolis was elected (2013 election). Mr. Miccolis was nominated through the petition process.

Voting rights for ACAS will be on the ballot. If passed, voting rights would be granted to "Associates who have been members at least five years."

Strictly limited to voting rights; does not amend the CAS Constitution or CAS Bylaws to allow Associates to be officers or hold positions on the Board of Governors or the Executive Council.

It's stricter than just voting rights. It strictly allows voting for officers and board of directors positions. Voting rights to amend the constitution and bylaws remain exclusively with the fellows. I like it.

It's interesting how limited the change of rights is in the proposed amendments to the Constitution & Bylaws.

As you point out, associates would get voting rights for President-Elect and Board of Directors, but would not be able to serve in those roles. Perhaps more importantly, they would not get the right to vote on future Constitution/Bylaws amendments.

From what I saw in the discussion here, the "Stronger As One" initiative pushed by the CAS & SOA boards a couple years ago really highlighted the disenfranchisement of ACAS's, who had as much (or more) at stake as FCAS's but had absolutely no say in the future of CAS. It may have further stoked support for the current proposed ACAS voting rights amendment; however, the proposed amendment doesn't address this type of situation. I have to wonder if this was intentional or an oversight.

It's still an improvement because the board members voting to approve such a proposal will probably need some ACAS support to get elected in the first place. It maintains the enfrachisement of the ACAS members in an indirect manner.

I can't vote from the floor of the senate, but I can vote my senators out of office if they do things I don't like.

That's how it works in the SOA, too.

Before our own bylaw amendment, ASAs could vote on section council members, if they were a member of a section. That's it.

Now ASAs with 5 years of membership+ can vote on the board and officers. But not bylaw amendments.
