Motion made and went to vote

Recommended Posts

A motion was made and went to a vote. 2 people voted for, 0 against and 20 abstained from voting. Does this motion pass?

Yes, with caveats.

The exception is if the motion in question requires a majority of those present or a majority of the entire membership. Unless your bylaws specify otherwise, this doesn't apply to main motions.

Yes. In fact it would technically be correct to say that it passed without dissent, which is one definition of "unanimously".

Not to mention a 2/3 vote.
