As per BCDP Bylaws, in order to provide ballot measure recommendations, the Executive Committee will engage in a two-part voting process:
The first vote will consider establishing a position on the measure. The motion shall be “Shall we take a position on this measure?” If the motion fails to get a simple majority, then BCDP shall publish that it takes no position on this measure. If the motion passes with a simple majority then a second vote shall be taken. The second vote will consider supporting or opposing the ballot measure. Any member may request a straw poll prior to the formal vote. There are three possible outcomes of a formal vote: (1) A super majority vote for passing the motion results in a position of support for the ballot measure, (2) A super majority vote against passing the motion results in a position of opposition to the measure, (3) a simple majority vote in either direction or a tie results in no position being taken on the measure by BCDP.
