Reconsideration of the Ballot

Q. When a candidate has been rejected by one or more secret votes, can a reconsideration be requested?

A. No, the Worshipful Master alone, can, for reasons satisfactory to himself, order a reconsideration, and he can do this only on the night of the ballot, and only if no member present and voting has departed.
