Sample Minutes
The two detailed sample minutes in this document provide some examples of style for documenting items like motions laid on the table (or taken from the table), points of order, appeals, referrals to committee, and recesses, to name a few. The minutes are based on real-life examples that I think you can benefit from because they were prepared in general conformity with the principles in Robert's Rules.

Tellers' Election Worksheet
In any election, it's important to track the nominees and the ballot totals and tallies. This tellers' worksheet is designed as a nice, simple way to accumulate all the information you need to prepare a perfect tellers' report. Of course, after you download the form, you can adapt it according to your own needs, but I personally find its current, simplified layout more than helpful.

Tellers' Report for Elections
When your organization votes by ballot, reporting the details is important for the record (and for preventing the occasional fistfight). Two forms on the website are designed to help you in that process. The Elections is for reporting the ballot counts in a vote on an election. Both forms include the critical components for proper reporting of the following:
  • The number of votes cast
  • The number of votes required to elect (or adopt, as in the case of a motion)
  • The total votes cast for each candidate (or choice, as in the case of a motion)
  • The total number of illegal votes and a short description of each such vote
