President's Voting

You'd do the same thing(s) you'd do if the motion was defeated 0 to 10, or 3 to 7. Defeated is defeated whether by a tie vote or a larger margin. So you'd probably move on to the next item of business.

It's quite possible the defeated motion could be brought up again at a subsequent meeting.

Basically, with the exception of an election, a tie vote defeats a motion.  Thus, the motion is defeated.  It can then be brought up at every subsequent meeting.  In the case of an election, a tie vote is an incomplete election, and more rounds of voting is required until a member gets a majority of votes cast. 

The only other option when a tie vote would not defeat a motion would be an appeal of the Chairman's decision.  But then it would simply cause the Chairman's decision to be upheld.

There may be other issues where a tie vote is not the same as defeating the motion, but I will leave that up to more learned members to advise on those issues.
