Voting Information

In various situations, the LF AI & Data Outreach Committee shall hold a vote. These votes can happen on the phone, email, or via a voting service, when appropriate. Outreach Committee voting members can either respond "agree, yes, +1", "disagree, no, -1", or "abstain". 

a) Quorum for Governing Board and Committee meetings will require fifty percent of the voting representatives. If advance notice of the meeting has been given per normal means and timing, the Governing Board may continue to meet even if quorum is not met, but will be prevented from making any decisions at the meeting.

b) Ideally decisions will be made based on consensus. If, however, any decision requires a vote to move forward, the representatives of the Governing Board or Committee, as applicable, will vote on a one vote per voting representative basis.

c) Except as provided in Section 16.a., decisions by vote at a meeting will require a simple majority vote, provided quorum is met. Except as provided in Section 16.a., decisions by electronic vote without a meeting will require a majority of all voting representatives.

d) In the event of a tied vote with respect to an action that cannot be resolved by the Governing Board, the Chair may refer the matter to the LF for assistance in reaching a decision. If there is a tied vote in any Committee that cannot be resolved, the matter may be referred to the Governing Board.

Additional information is available in the LF AI & Data Charter.
