Once again, this is a periodic reminder of why *formally* organizing (which may or may not involve incorporation in a State) is such a great idea.

This kind of thing (Who is a member of the community? How do they vote? How do you determine whether a vote is properly held and binding?) is *precisely* the concern of parliamentary procedure.

For what it's worth, Robert's is clear on this; a non-vote is just that, a non-vote. Only actual votes for yea or nay get tallied and count towards a result.

Or, you could post to the web site, the list, all the channels, saying "raise your hand if you consider yourself part of the code4lib community,"
and count hands.

Sheesh, people. Coral's right: "membership" in this group is amorphous.
It's by self-identification, and can (and does!) change constantly.
