Changing vote

Recommended Posts

Guest Susie

Can a member use a Motion to Reconsider in order to change or clarify the intension of his vote? This member got confused about striking a negative statement from ordinances, resulting in the allowance of another activity. 
 

Would  the new motion have to use different verbiage?

A member who voted on the prevailing side may move to Reconsider, but there are time limits on this motion which have likely already passed. It can only be made on the same day, or on the next day if it is a multiple day convention.

At this point, if the motion was defeated, he can make the motion anew at the next meeting (with modified wording, if desired). If it was adopted, he can move to rescind or amend it, which requires a 2/3 vote, a vote of a majority of the entire membership, or a majority vote with previous notice.

One hopes the motion does not use any verbiage. That word means “speech or writing that uses too many words or excessively technical expressions.”

A new motion may or may not use different wording than the original.
