Civ. Code Section 4065

Old Code: None

New Code: 4065

Subject: Approval by majority of members, defined

If a provision of this act requires that an action be approved by a majority of all members, the action shall be approved or ratified by an affirmative vote of a majority of the votes entitled to be cast.

Substantive Changes: The inclusion of the phrase "entitled to be cast" is important here, as this clarification was not previously included in the Civil Code. Therefore, the number of votes that constitute a majority may change depending on whether a member or members have had their voting rights suspended pursuant to notice and hearing (if such a suspension is allowed by the Association's governing documents).
