No vote should be taken on the approval (not acceptance) of the minutes, and therefore a motion to approve them is unnecessary. The secretary reads the minutes, the chair asks for any corrections (adopted by unanimous consent or majority vote), and then announces the minutes approved.

Participation in the approval of the minutes (corrections is what we're really talking about) is not restricted only to members who were present at the previous meeting.

Does the recording secretary record one vote after an election?

In what way? Could you please provide more information as I do not understand your question.

If you're referring to the practice of the secretary casting one unanimous ballot for an unopposed nominee, no. That practice is inappropriate. If you're referring to something else, see Rev Ed's post above.
