Quorum for Virtual Vote

Recommended Posts

Guest Tyna

When taking a virtual (online) vote, does a person who states online that they are not voting due to a conflict of interest count towards quorum?

Online voting is prohibited by RONR, unless you have a bylaws provision to allow it.  If you do, then you should also have rules on how things are handled.  But I think it's reasonable to consider a person who does not vote as having abstained.  The concept of a quorum online is always a problem, since RONR defines it as the number of members present in the room.  It sounds like you need a special rule of order rule in the bylaws to sort out how a quorum is determined online.

I think they might need a bylaw to set this rule.
