Who gets to vote?

Our group is in the process of writing an Organising Agreement and we
are trying to work out the finer detail of how we make decisions. Of
course we will be using consensus and hope to decide most issues in this
way, but we will revert to 75% majority vote where agreement can't
otherwise be made. 

The question is, does this generally mean one vote per (full member)
household, or one vote per adult (there may be 2 or 3 adults in a
household)? And what about Associate Members? I've looked through the
archives and it seems that generally renters don't get to have this
final say in decision-making, but I can't find reference to how other
groups have handled this issue of just how this final voting thing

We're probably going to finalise this on Wednesday so I'd really
appreciate hearing how other groups do it before then. Thanks!
