Technical question about reconsidering a motion

Guest Chris

Recommended Posts

RR states that to make a motion to reconsider a motion, one must have voted on the prevailing side regarding the original motion. If the vote for the original motion was blind, with nobody knowing for certain who voted one way or another, how is one to verify whether the individual making the motion to reconsider the motion actually was on the prevailing side of the original vote?

Presuming the time constraints on moving to Reconsider have not run out, the person making the motion should state how they voted. If they fail to do so, the chair should inquire. Presumably they know for certain how they voted, even if no one else does.

If there is no proof to the contrary, the chair would have no reason not to take their word for it.
