May a Mover vote "No"?

4 posts in this topic

Hello RR pros. Here's my two-part question:

  1. May an individual who introduces a motion (i.e., the mover) vote "no" once the motion goes to vote?
  2. Is there a specific provision within RR which discusses this (or is it merely permissible by way of not being disallowed)?

Thank you in advance!

He may vote against his motion (see RONR, 11th ed., p. 393, ll. 20-22).

He is not, however, permitted to speak against his own motion (p. 393, l.19-25)...although if he changes his mind about the motion while its pending, "he can...advise the assembly of this by asking permission to withdraw the motion."
