So do they fill Phil's vacant seat early with someone who might vote NO, or do they leave the seat vacant so they eliminate one potential NO vote?

Sec. 17. - Failure to vote.

No member of the council shall be excused from voting, except upon matters involving the consideration of his own official conduct or if a conflict of interest exists as defined by the laws of this state pertaining to conflict of interest of officials and employees. In all other cases a failure to vote shall be entered on the minutes as an affirmative vote.

If the CoG decides to not fill Phil's seat, is this considered a failure to vote by Phil, which automatically becomes a YES vote?
Hmmmm. Maybe Phils's vote becomes a NO vote?

If they were voting to legalize Casino's and Brothels's would it be an automatic "YES" or "NO".

or does Phil know that no legal vote can happen without him?
