Yes.Your by-laws will give you the specifics for your particular HOA (the voting rules vary between individual HOAs regarding quorum requirements, and what percentage majority is required to pass an amendment to your CC&Rs, so you will need to review your HOA's governing documents to find out what rules apply to your specific situation, but yes, changes to the CC&Rs must be voted in by the members).

what are cc&r's ? are they the same as Rules and Regulations?
Real Estate Lawyer: CalAttorney2, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
Yes, they are (CC&Rs stands for "Covenants Conditions and Restrictions" but there are a few different titles for these documents).
