Board Voting Requirments

3 posts in this topic

Five board members:

Topic a Joiner Agreement

1 can't vote because the Joiner Agreement is for his lot

1 abstained because he was not at the meeting when discussed

That leaves three to vote

How many yes votes are needed to pass?

More yes votes than no votes. Abstentions don't count either way. They are not votes. Unless you have a special rule requiring some higher threshold, a motion can be adopted by vote of one to zero. It is the number of members present and voting that count, not the number of members who are present.

Assuming the remaining three members all vote, two.

It is also not correct that the member who is affected by the agreement can't vote, unless your bylaws or applicable law so provide. So far as RONR is concerned, he should not vote, but he has the right to do vote.
