Reference to a By Law being suspended

Our organization recently voted to suspend a rule requiring a ballot vote. I have read in RONR 11th edition that a by law requiring a ballot vote cannot be suspended. Should our organization rescind this due to the motion being out of order and re vote on the members?

The reason for this is that the point of a ballot vote is to allow people to express their true opinion without having to worry about the optics. If a vote is contentious in a way that makes this likely to be a problem, then someone objecting to waiving the ballot could be tantamount to taking an opinion on the issue. Thus, the ballot rule is worthless if it can be set aside.
