US-Centric view[edit]

This meme needs to be delegated to US Voting methods, as much of it is based on US texts which are not applicable in other legislations. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.196.166.94 (talk) 14:31, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

The same thought occurred to me, when reading the claim in the first section that a voice vote is 'the usual method of voting on any motion that does not require more than a majority vote for its adoption'. I think voice votes are rather unusual in Europe. Rather bizarre to use that method for official decisions. I only know that the winner of a not very serious music contest was decided that way.
