Any member may move to take a vote by ballot.  The motion to take a vote by ballot must be seconded, is not debatable and requires a majority vote for adoption unless it is agreed to by unanimous consent.


Here is a quote from RONR on methods of voting from page 288:


"METHODS OF VOTING. In practice, the method of taking a vote usually can be agreed upon informally. But when different methods are suggested, they are usually treated not as amendments but as filling blanks, the vote normally being [page 285] taken first on the one taking the most time. (For ways of voting, see pp. 44–54; 45.)

A member who believes that a secret vote will give a truer expression of the assembly's will on a pending motion can move that the vote on the motion be taken by ballot."
