  1. I have a question. We have an advisory board meeting for 4-H shooting sports. a discussion was brought up about membership dues and fees at a shooting range. All of the board was present. A motion was made to keep the dues the same and make the advanced shooters pay their dues at the shooting range. It was 2nd, voted on and passed with 100% voting for it. later on the meeting was adjourned. Now some of the members want to change the rule that was voted on even though it was voted on and passed. Can this be done in a special meeting? It comes down to that some of the members were scare
  2. A vote was called and ruled upon based with a majority vote. Now a member of the majority has resigned. Can the replacement member make a motion (maybe under new businesses) to revoke the past vote? Or does it need to be a sitting member of the majority from the existing vote.
  3. Robert's Rules state that once the party has been notified a vote was taken on a resignation, the motion can not be amended or rescinded. If it comes back that the motion voted on contained wrong information and the party was notified before the mistake was found, does that mean a new vote must take place in order to pass the motion with the correct information? Specifically, I was notified my resignation was approved by the board. However, the board approved my retirement, not my resignation as the notification stated. Does that mean in order to approve my resignation (resignation and r
  4. If a vote passed, then after people realized we didn’t have quorum, is there a rule that we have to revote or can the vote stay because no one called for a quorum count?
  5. If a motion has failed by a no vote, can a revote at the next meeting take place by making another motion for the vote?
  6. Our organization's bylaws provide that Voting Day is at the May General Meeting and that "Members may cast their ballot in person or in advance." My question is what happens if no candidate receives a majority for a role? Assuming we have a quorum present, do we just re-vote at the meeting until someone is elected? (i.e. if absentee votes would, perforce, only be included in the first round.)
  7. We had a motion to change the club by-laws, which was brought for a vote of the general membership at our annual meeting. The vote was conducted as a show of hands. The chairperson (club president) explained and spoke in favor of the amendment, and invited others to speak, for or against, and to ask questions. Several people did so. During the discussion, a point of order was raised questioning whether we had a quorum, and it was determined that we did. The chairperson voted, visibly, during the show of hands. The vote passed by a significant margin, and therefore the by-law change passe
  8. Greetings, We are a condominium association in Oregon. All unit owners make up our membership, and we have a board of directors for regular monthly meetings. Every April, we have an annual meeting of all members, at which we vote in new Directors and other business (and eat dinner!). Our bylaws state that we must have, whether present or by proxy, 50% of our general members in order to have a quorum, and that a vote requires 50% of all members (not just 50% of those in attendance) to pass. In our annual meeting last month, we had 57%, so we had a quorum. The meeting notice included an ite
  9. In a paper ballot, the vote ends up in a a tie. Do you again revote until a majority vote is accomplished? It seems that a majority is not reached to either pass or fail the issue in the event of a tie. Nobody wins and nobody losses.

    Overturning a Vote

    Our board had a vote last night and we voted for a particular vendor to supply us with their product. The day after the official vote, several members started noticing that they were not clear on the entire product the vendor was suppling, and feel they might have been misled. It was presented to the President that the board wants to revisit the offers from both vendors (now knowing the true details) and revote on offering the business. The President says it is not too late, because he verbally called the winning vendor that night and notified them they were awarded the business. Can we in fac
