Suspend the bylaws

If your bylaws call for ballot voting, can you vote to suspend the bylaws in order to allow the members to vote electronically.

No on two fronts. First, if the bylaws require a ballot vote it would be violating the rights of the individual member to attempt to suspend the rule (RONR p. 255 lines 18-22). Second, absentee voting is not allowed unless the bylaws specifically provides for it and the rules cannot be suspended to allow it (RONR p. 2 [footnote], p. 244[d], p. 255 lines 5-12, pp. 408-409.
