Reconsideration of previous vote

Guest Guest

Recommended Posts

What percentage of voting members present does it take to reconsider a vote from a previous meeting?

Firstly, the term "reconsider" has a very specific parliamentary meaning and is not applicable in this situation.

That said, a defeated motion can be made again ("renewed") by any member at any subsequent meeting (as if it had never been made).

An adopted motion can often be rescinded (or otherwise amended). A two-thirds vote will do it.

And note that the basis for determining the vote is not the number of voting members present but the number of members present and voting.
