abstention votes

Can you bring up a motion that was passed, to take a new vote if you abstened from voting the first time it passed???

Following up on Mr. Stackpole, you won't simply take another vote on the motion, though. You can either Rescind (reverse, undo, cancel, that sort of thing) the motion, or you can Amend (make changes to the particulars of the motion adopted).

So if the motion to donate $50 to a specific charity was adopted, and you abstained from the vote, you won't get to vote on it again. You can either undo the motion (Rescind) or change it (Amend) to give more or less money, or give it to a different charity or charities. But the motion doesn't just simply come back up for another vote.
