Membership is defined as legal ownership. All who are legal owners, one or more 
per household, are empowered in consensus, individually.
We have a back-up voting process (only used once in almost 25 years!) which 
allows one vote per household, and that vote may, optionally, be split 
proportional to ownership interest. Unless that latter concept is invoked, any 
member of the owning household may cast the vote for that membership. 

But like I said, we virtually never have needed the back up voting.
