majority votes

For the answer to that, you really need RONR.  It is a complicated question to answer and some motions require a two thirds vote if no previous notice is given but a majority vote will suffice if previous notice is given.  RONR lists 26 motions that sometimes require a two thirds vote on page 46 of the appendix.  The most common situations are to suspend the rules, to close debate (the previous question), to limit and extend the limits of debate, to amend the bylaws, and to rescind and amend something previously adopted when no previous notice was given.  But, as I said above, RONR lists 26 such motions.


Do you have any particular motions in mind that you are wondering about?
