Tie Vote

Recommended Posts

Our By Laws do not state that a President can't vote on a motion in an Executive Commitee. We have 8 EC members and a vote has will likely come to a tie. If the President votes, who breaks a tie then?

A motion that requires a majority vote is adopted only if there are more yes votes than no votes. All other results mean the motion was defeated. A tie vote (4 to 4 in your case) defeats the motion just as a vote of 3-5, 2-6, 1-7 or 0-8 does. There is no tie breaker except in elections, when additional rounds of voting are held until there is a winner.
