What's more democratic than voting? It's the cornerstone of American democracy. Robert's Rules set out specific recommendations for protecting the individual member's right to vote in groups and organizations. Whether your group is large or small, civic or social, voting is integral to conducting business and furthering the goals of the group. No business can be conducted without voting. No officers can be elected without voting. And there is no integrity in a group or organization that does not vigorously guard the fairness and impartiality of the voting process.
