Minutes - When a count is ordered.

2 posts in this topic

RONR clearly states when a count is ordered on a vote, that the count goes into the minutes.  Does that apply to motions which are normally not recorded, such as a subsidiary motion where it's not necessary to normally record it for completeness?  Or does the fact it was counted now make it necessary to record for completeness?   (I was reading an old thread where this question wasn't fully answered.)

No, the rule which provides that when a count has been ordered the number of votes on each side should be entered in the minutes should not be regarded as applying to votes on motions which would not otherwise be recorded in the minutes. The detailed results of a ballot vote, or a roll-call vote, however, are always entered in the minutes.
