It really depends on the bylaws of the nonprofit organization. If the by-laws allow new members to vote in special meetings then yes it is allowed. You need to simply read the bylaws and see what is allowable and what is not allowable.
Bylaws are your organization’s operating manual. They define:
(1) Size of the board and how it will function
(2) Roles and duties of directors and officers
(3) Rules and procedures for holding meetings, electing directors, and appointing officers
(4) Conflict of interest policies and procedures
(5) How grant monies will be distributed
(6) Other essential corporate governance matters
