Is the parliamentarian counted as part of the quorum even though they don't vote?

If the parliamentarian is a member of the assembly, yes, he would be counted toward the quorum. A member-parliamentarian retains the right to vote, he simply refrains from exercising it. (RONR, 10th ed., pg. 255, lines 25-28; pg. 334, lines 2-5) Also note that it is appropriate for a member-parliamentarian to vote when the vote is taken by ballot. (RONR, 10th ed., pg. 451, lines 4-8)
