Motions in the minutes read "Approved Unanimously"

Although such a vote would technically be unanimous, there is no reason why the minutes should make reference to that fact, as it gives the (false) impression that a motion adopted unanimously is somehow different from one adopted by a single vote margin.


In the case of a counted vote, the minutes would contain the vote counts for and against, but for a voice vote, rising vote or (uncounted) show of hands, just noting whether it was adopted or rejected is all that the minutes should record.
