If somebody is running unopposed, and a ballot vote is not required in the bylaws, the chair simply declares him/her elected  --  no further voting required or proper.  See RONR, page 443.

Furthermore, "Yes"/"No" ( or "for" / "against") votes are not proper in elections.  See page 430.

And if there is a ballot vote (unopposed or not) there should be no Yes or No votes.  There should be the name of the candidate(s), and a space for write-in votes.

Since someone must be elected, a ballot that does not indicate a choice is not a valid vote.  In other words, the only way to vote against a candidate is to vote for a different candidate.
