 +  - **E.** Voting in New Members
 +      - **1.** Voting in new members requires the consensus of all house members, whether or not they are present at the meeting during which the initial vote takes place. Consensus is defined here as the absence of a “no” vote.
 +      - **2.** A single “no” vote of any member may block the prospective member.
 +      - **3.** A revote of ¾ of the house in favor of allowing the prospective member to move in, and not simply quorum, may overturn the “no” vote.
 +      - **4.** Votes on prospective members may not be made while they are present in the house.
 +  - **F.** Bower Parking
 +      - **1.** Parking seniority in the Bower parking lot (and other spaces guaranteed to the house by the SHC) will be determined by two factors: whether a member has a vehicle upon their move-in (or renewed contract start) date, and their signing date. Members who will have a specific vehicle by the time of said move-in/renewed contract start dates will have the priority to access parking for the remainder of their contract, but if there are more members with vehicles, then access will be based on the earliest signing date.
 +          - **i.** Exception: If a member has physical limitations or needs to have a vehicle in the lot for their personal health and/or safety, then such members will have top seniority for a parking spot in the Bower parking lot.
 +          - **ii.** Exception: If a member has possession of a vehicle that is not with them physically or has a proof of a definitive plan to own a specific vehicle within three months of their contract start date, they can request to have a parking spot held in the lot up until the end of the third month. If by then they do not have said vehicle they will revoke their parking spot. During the period that this spot is empty, members next in line of seniority may use this spot until the original member has their vehicle.
 +           - **iii.** If there are any extenuating circumstances, additional accommodations can be made.
 +      - **2.** Guests may use the Bower parking lot to park their vehicle if at the time there are more parking spots than members with vehicles. Otherwise, guests must find a different spot to park their vehicle(s).
 +      - **3.** Assigned parking spots (a specific physical area for a specific person’s vehicle) are determined by current members, yet members do not need to assign spots if they decide this as a house.
