They can lower dues

The votes were reported

YES-NO-ABSTAIN

I would assume if you didn't vote locally with your unit it was counted as abstained.

If you do not vote with your unit, the percentage of those who voted is used against the total number of votes for your unit. Abstains are people who chose to abstain or maybe the delegate was confused.

I understand this to me that the total votes were actually votes yes or no and the abstentions are not considered votes thus the difference in the tally. Makes sense!

Abstentions only come into play when you are trying to determine who won based on the majority requirements, i.e., simple majority, 2/3 majority, majority of the votes cast, etc. Here it seemed like a simple majority was all that was needed. To abstain in this kind of voting, means you will accept the will of the majority, so in effect you have voted with the majority. This makes the defeat of the MOHO amendment even more dramatic.

I had heard some discussion at our happy hour this evening that the MOHO issue is going to reappear, don't know how or when but the big wheels are not going to let it die when they think it is the best thing to do.

Way too much time and energy is being spent when the club has other major pressing issues (declining membership). I hope they figure it out and LISTEN to the membership. PLEASE!

Let 'em try. We'll vote it down, and vote them OUT. All they want is a free ride!
