    Changing a Vote

    Last night at my university's Undergraduate Student Government meeting, I voted in favor of a resolution by a roll call vote which eventually passed.

Changing my vote will not change the outcome, it is just that new information that has come about makes me in no way support this resolution and I do not want to go on record as being in support of it as a better representa
  2. What is the/is there a procedure when a member would like to waive their voting rights on one particular matter but still be included in quorum? She doesn't want to abstain because in doing so our organization may not meet quorum. In order to reinstate her rights, would the entire organization then have to vote to do so?
  3. According to the Bylaws for our volunteer, non-profit Board, our 12 member board votes for our 4 executive positions. This is the first time we've ever had a tie vote for a position - vice president. Our Bylaws do not discuss how to handle a tie. It was suggested that as incoming president, I should cast the deciding vote. However, I don't think that would create goodwill for our board going forward.

  8. My organization will be voting for open Board of Director spots and a few officers at this month’s members meeting, the voting rules and eligibility have been hotly debated but absentee ballots have been sent out in accordance to RRO (2 envelopes, ballots, signatures etc.) and some have already been returned. The membership had agreed that when they can into the organizations building they were to be dropped into the safe and remain there till the meeting, and then following RRO, they would be opened, validated and counted during the election. It has come to my attention today, that the cur

    Chairman resignation

    I have two questions: If the chairman of the board is resigning from the board completely is it proper for a new chairman to be elected prior to the old chairman's resignation and if so, can the old chairman vote for the new chairman? I would appreciate any responses.
  11. Thank you for your thoughts on my two related questions. First: My two following questions are the basis of dispute over the a vote taken at a special homeowners association meeting called to vote on three proposed amendments to our bylaws. The first question is "Must votes cast by proxy-holder at a special meeting held to vote on proposed bylaw amendments be excluded from the tallying of votes on the proposed amendment?" Of our total membership of 279, 186 members were "signed in" -including 60 proxy sign-ins. Therefore, 126 members were physically present for this vote. The language in our B
