Is a no reply on an email vote an abstention?

If a resolution is circulated by email with request for votes to be cast by replying to that email, where a board member does not reply, is this considered an abstention? Or a withheld vote? Or absent?

If it's an e-mail vote, everyone is absent. I don't know what distinction you see between an abstention and a "withheld vote" ( a term RONR does not use). They sound the same to me.

I'm also not clear on why this matters. Under ordinary circumstances, non-votes, regardless of the reason, have no affect on the outcome and are not recorded.

I'd be more concerned with whether it is proper for your board to vote by e-mail in the first place.
