Abstention deadlocks five-member homeowners association board

May 20, 2012|By Stephen Glassman and Donie Vanitzian

Question: There are five directors on our homeowners association board. If the vote on an item is two yes, two no and one abstention, what is the outcome: yes or no?

Answer: Yes or no? Neither. The matter is unresolved because it did not receive a majority of votes. Tie votes prevent a board from taking any action on the motion.
