Tied Vote

Example case: If a small board of 5 members votes on an issue and the votes are two ayes, two nays and one abstain because of direct relation to the issue, does the motion fail because a lack votes to pass the motion?

Yes, in order to pass, a motion needs more yes votes than no votes. A tie is less than a majority. (Abstentions don't count as votes at all.)
