If you have quorum at a meeting and need to vote on something and some voting members are not present at the meeting, do you send an email to them following the meeting in order for them to cast a vote?

Not under the rules in RONR.  "It is a fundamental principle of parliamentary law that the right to vote is limited to the members of an organization who are actually present at the time the vote is taken in a regular or properly called meeting, although it should be noted that a member need not be present when the question is put. Exceptions to this rule must be expressly stated in the bylaws."  RONR (11th ed.), p. 423
