  1. I'm the secretary of our board with a question about how to record a telephone vote in our meeting minutes. Our board held a special meeting by conference call to approve a resolution. When it was time to vote, I polled the members in the same fashion as a roll call vote. However, holding a vote by roll call per se requires majority approval, which we did not seek because there was no other way to vote (voice votes don't work on a conference call and we didn't have any other electronic means where everyone could monitor the voting procedure.) I assume the minutes should only indicate the total "ayes" and "nays" as though it was a vote by a show of hands, and not the vote of each board member.
