With regard to majority vote, the description in Robert's Rules states that it would be a majority of the votes cast, excluding blanks.  Would abstentions be considered blanks?

 

No, Robert's Rules states that it would be "... more than half of the votes cast by persons entitled to vote, excluding blanks or abstentions ..." (RONR, 11th ed., p. 400, emphasis supplied).

In a small board situation (7 members), voting to rescind a motion, is a 2/3rd majority required?  And in the case of an abstention, such that there are 4 votes in favour of rescinding, 2 opposed, and 1 abstention, has 2/3rd majority been achieved, if it is in fact necessary?  And lastly, if the motion to rescind was distributed in advance of the meeting, is a simple majority sufficient?

Guest Tanya, even though your question is somewhat similar to the original question in this thread, it is actually a different question involving a different issue and we would prefer that you ask it by starting a new topic   That’s just the way we do things here. Then we will be happy to help you. 😊
