When your bylaws specify a 2/3 majority to approve, how are abstentions counted? There are 8 people voting. 5 have approved and 3 are abstaining.

The motion passes by a vote of 5 to 0 if the requirement is an ordinary two thirds vote, which means two thirds of those present and voting. Those who abstained did not vote.
