Quorum and voting requirements.
(1) Shares entitled to vote as a separate voting group may approve a corporate action at a meeting only if a quorum of those shares exists with respect to that corporate action. Unless the articles of incorporation or this title provide otherwise, a majority of the votes entitled to be cast on the corporate action by the voting group constitutes a quorum of that voting group for approval of that corporate action.
(2) Once a share is represented for any purpose at a meeting other than solely to object to holding the meeting or transacting business at the meeting, it is deemed present for quorum purposes for the remainder of the meeting and for any adjournment of that meeting unless a new record date is or must be set for that adjourned meeting.
(3) If a quorum exists, a corporate action, other than the election of directors, is approved by a voting group if the votes cast within the voting group favoring the corporate action exceed the votes cast within the voting group opposing the corporate action, unless the articles of incorporation or this title require a greater number of affirmative votes.
(4) An amendment of articles of incorporation adding, changing, or deleting either (i) [(a)] a quorum for a voting group greater or lesser than specified in subsection (1) of this section, or (ii) [(b)] a voting requirement for a voting group greater than specified in subsection (3) of this section, is governed by RCW 23B.07.270.
(5) The election of directors is governed by RCW 23B.07.280.
