Elections to Board of Directors

There are three people running for an open board position.  One withdraws.  Can the withdrawing person give his votes to one of the remaining candidates?  If not what happens to the vote#?

Of course not! From the phrasing of your question, I assume that the votes already have been cast, and maybe even counted. But regardless, the votes for the withdrawing candidate cannot be transferred.

The are still counted as part of the total votes cast. If that prevents one of the other candidates from receiving a majority, you have an incomplete elections and must vote again.

They are not "his" votes.  The votes belong to the members who cast them. If he withdraws after a ballot has been counted, and nobody (else) received a majority, another vote will be required.  The withdrawing person may endorse another candidate, but everyone is still free to vote however they wish.
