To determine a quorum for electronic voting, each library that pays a member fee is allotted one vote. In the case of schools, library agency should be interpreted as school district. Voting will be conducted electronically and occur one week after the SHARE Members' Group meeting. All fiscal and policy issues will be voted on electronically and a quorum will constitute fifty percent plus one of the SHARE full members. In some cases, changes that are only applicable to specific membership types will only be changed by a quorum of those members. Changes to cataloging policy will be voted on by a quorum of cataloging libraries, and changes to the e-resources policy should be voted on by a quorum of e-resources participants in order to streamline the voting process.

One week after the Members' Group meeting, a vote of the membership will be conducted electronically, to approve or disapprove the recommendation. Voting will take place for a period of at least one week. Results of the vote will be announced within one week of the vote closing. If the recommended policy is approved, the policy will be in effect at that time.
