Illegal By-laws Amendment

What is the name of your state? Pennsylvania
I live in a planned community with a population of about 380 members. The By-laws state that they may be amended by a simple majority of all members. Each member has 2 votes for each lot owned.

An amendment vote was conducted last October.

The By-laws in force when the vote was taken are clear on the requirement that a majority vote of all members is needed to amend the By-laws. With the current LITC membership of somewhat more than 380 (with 2 votes per lot owned) there has to be a vote for amendment greater than 380 yea votes for an amendment to pass. The total turnout cited in the association newsletter was only 335 (258 yea +77 nay), not enough to pass an amendment even if they were all yea votes. Passage was declared anyway.

What recourse is available to prevent this error from being adopted as a legitimate vote?

And this has to do with workers compensation, or even employment law, how?

You might do better to repost under one of the Real Estate boards.
