One vote per membership fee?

our pto charges 3.00 per person . That way it is one vote per membership. If the other spouse wants to vote pay your dues and come to 3 meetings and you will be able to vote. That way there is no conflict.

We have had the issue come up at our election of officers and it was not a pretty site. I feel that each family should have one vote. We had a few single mom's that came to vote...we always tell everyone, "every vote counts"...and when we seen how many wifes brought their previously never seen husbands to vote we lost quite a bit of respect from one parent households who felt their votes did not matter. When families go to the trouble of arguing over how many votes they should have it is typically not for good is usually for personal reasons instead of "for the good of the PTO". We too charge $5.00 for a family's membership.

I am the treasurer of a newly formed PTO for our new school. A hotly debated subject among the board members concerns our proposed bylaws and whether because we charge $5.00 per household does that household only get one vote? I don't believe in tying the votes to the membership fee but what if it is a single parent household as opposed to a husband and wife? I'd sure appreciate some input. Thanks
