Casting Vote

Because an amendment to the governing documents requires more than a majority vote, a rising vote should be used. Unless it is almost unanimous, the vote should be counted, RONR (10th ed.), p. 576, ll. 12, 13.

It is not at all improper, though, to take the vote by ballot. When no question is pending, a motion to take the vote by ballot is a debatable main motion. When the motion to amend the bylaws is actually pending, the motion to take the vote on it is an undebatable incidental motion. In either case, the motion requires a majority vote, RONR (10th ed.), §30, pp. 273ff.
