What are the voting requirements?
In 2018, RCW 64.90 went into effect, most of which does not affect LCMC. (We are generally governed by RCW 64.38.) RCW 64.90.525 does pertain to us. (In 2019, RCW 64.90.080 was added to make this clear.) It covers voting for budgets, which include the plan for expenditures, assessments, and special assessments. That law requires a majority of owners (50%+1) to vote against a budget for it to fail.
