If a board member has another member that is not a board member give a report and "sit in" for her at a meeting can the person "sitting in" have a vote?

Only members of the body that is meeting can vote. In a board meeting, that would be only board members.

Also, only members of the body that is meeting have a right to attend. So, the board can toss out a nonmember of the board, even if he is "sitting in." Furthermore, a nonmember has no right to speak in a board meeting, except with permission of the board, and it requires a two-thirds vote to allow a nonmember to debate the merits of a pending question.
