When the rule in RONR is followed there should be little to no distrust of the tellers eliminating a need for observers: " The tellers should be chosen for accuracy and dependability, should have the confidence of the membership, and should not have a direct personal involvement in the question or in the result of the vote to an extent that they should refrain from voting under the principle stated on page 407. Often their position with regard to the issue involved is well known, however, and they are frequently chosen to protect the interests of each opposing side. They normally vote themselves." RONR (11th ed.), p. 414, ll. 12-20. emphasis added.
