Last year we bought our first property in Spain but were unable to attend the Community’s AGM. We did not nominate anyone to vote on our behalf.
When I received the minutes of the AGM. I was surprised to find in the record that another owner is shown as voting on our behalf (and also on behalf of several other owners). I wrote to the Administrators and asked for an explanation.
The Administrators replied that I must attend and raise the matter at the next AGM.

Your community president signs the official minutes of the AGM and you’re right to say they must correct them.
Firstly, inform the president and request this issue is on the official agenda for the next meeting. If you can’t attend, inform the president of this also.
If it’s shown that someone falsified a Power of Attorney to cast your vote, this is a serious matter.
Even if it’s an error, you can still impugn the minutes and even invalidate the results of the votes at the AGM.
