What is roll-call voting?
In contrast to a show of hands, nominative voting is carried out for each resolution, using a so-called nominative ballot. This makes it possible to identify distinctly the position of each co-owner between the approval, the opposition and the abstention.
In addition, according to the condominiums, the number of votes held by each co-owner can be registered on his ballot.
What are the terms of the roll-call vote?
Nominal voting rules in General Assembly are described in the recommendation n° 4 emanating from the Commission Relative to the Co-ownership (CRC).
As for the vote by show of hands, it recommends that the Chairman of the meeting consult the co-owners present and represented for each resolution of the agenda, then proclaim the results, having first verified the number of votes each one enjoys..
What are the interests of roll-call voting?
The vote by roll call in General Assembly of co-ownership presents different advantages over the show of hands.
First, it clearly discerns the decision of each co-owner, that is to say, to measure who voted what.
Moreover, he thus limits the risk of confusion, and therefore of contesting the minutes if the vote of a co-owner was not correctly transcribed, which could also have consequences on the nature and the validity of the final result.
It is for these two main reasons that large condominiums, or those whose number of co-owners is lower but with a very uneven distribution of votes between them, favor the nominative ballot system.
