Breaking a tie vote

Guest Bill

Recommended Posts

We have an even number of voting members, how do we break a tie vote?

A motion that requires a majority vote for adoption means that more than half of the votes cast must be in the affirmative to adopt the motion. With a tie, a majority in the affirmative was not reached, so the motion is lost. There is no parliamentary reason to break the tie.
