Act 3, 1879 (III) – Declaratory Act anent Voting by Mandate. 31st May 1879.

Whereas doubts have arisen regarding the law and practice of this Church as to voting in the Election of Ministers and the Signing of Calls, the General Assembly declare and enact, that at any meeting of a Congregation for the election of a Minister, no vote shall be allowed or recorded unless the vote is given by a member of the Congregation who is personally present ; and that when a Call at large is moderated in, it shall only be subscribed by those who personally adhibit their names ; but that when a Call is moderated in to an individual whose name is in the edict announcing the  moderation, the Call may be subscribed on behalf of members not present when a Mandate authorising such subscription is produced.
