My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advice but a guide to assist you.

If the motion has not been seconded then it cannot be put to the vote.

You have to look at your constitution about how voting takes place and what happens. This is what governs your body.
