Condominiums often have votes equal to the percentage interest the own in the 
building. Or any other scheme the owners agree to. Unless the state law 
mandates one method or the other, the owners decide and put it in the bylaws.

We have 1 vote per unit regardless of the size of the unit or the percentage 
interest or how many people own the unit. If there are two owners, they can 
each record 1/2 of the vote for their unit.

We have back up majority vote but I doubt if we would ever use it. But 
personally, I am glad we have it. Sometimes there is one person, a Donald 
Trump, who is not reasonable and will not have their objections resolved. The 
Ukraine action this week is something Trump has raised repeatedly since he got 
in the White House. Everyone opposed it. So finally he just did it. There are 
people out there like that. Putting a multi-million dollar investment at risk 
is probably not wise just because consensus is important.
