Pass Vote

RONR  pg. 421 ll. 1-8 states: "The roll is called in alphabetical order except that the presiding officer's name is called last, and only when his vote will affect the result. It is too late, after one person has answered to the roll call, to renew the debate. Each member, as his name is called, responds in the affirmative or negative as shown above. If he does not wish to vote, he answers present (or abstain). If he is not ready to vote, but wishes to be called on again after the roll has been completely called, he answers pass."

I believe the intent of this statement is to require the secretary to come back to a person who has elected to "pass" on the first round, as opposed to voting "present" or "abstain."
