Important Zoom Voting Requirement. Zoom voting can only be accomplished by one person per screen, whether a computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone. If you have more than one eligible voter in your household, you will need to vote on separate devices, even if you view the meeting together using one screen. If you do not have separate devices that feature screens, separate votes can be tallied using a regular cell phone or house phone. [not clear – does this mean a smartphone????]  And if you do not have any device that features a screen, you can still participate in, and vote during, the annual meeting on a regular cell phone or house phone.
