NEPN/NSBA Code: BEDF
Voting shall be by a show of hands with members indicating “yes”, “no”, or “abstain”. All members’ votes shall be recorded in the minutes. Any Board member can request a roll call vote whenever they deem an issue warrants it. The Board will honor such a request. The names of the members shall be called and each member shall respond “yes”, “no”, or “abstain”.
Maine public officials are obliged to vote openly; thus, secret ballots are not to be used by the Board of Directors.
A motion shall be declared carried upon the affirmative vote of the majority of the members present, unless otherwise required by law or Board policy.
