Subjective Nominative Case
I continue to check this site for correct grammar, and I am not getting what I beleive to be a good answer.
Correct or not correct: You and I will certainly be elected as officers.
You and me will certainly be elected to the new committee.
You and I will certainly be elected as officers.
'You and I' is the compound subject in this sentence, so the nominative case, 'I', is correct. This sentence is in the passive voice, where the subject receives the action of the verb, but the nominative case is still correct. Writing it in active voice would change the subject and put 'you and me' in the objective case.
The members will certainly elect you and me as officers.
