Voting--How Are Abstentions Handled??

If the By-Laws of a non-profit (in this case, a religious organization) do not address the handling of abstentions when voting on motions, how should they be handled?

I am on a non profit fairboard. At the meeting last night, the board was voting on some new equipment. I did not feel we had enough information to vote, so I abstained. The town liaison said I needed to explain why I abstained. Did I have to give a reason?

Nothing in RONR requires you to explain your vote.
