 ## Vetoes
 
-A valid, binding veto cannot be overruled. If a veto is cast, it must be accompanied by a
valid reason explaining the veto. The validity of a veto, if challenged, can be confirmed
by anyone who has a binding vote. This does not necessarily signify agreement with the veto
- merely that the veto is valid.

 If you disagree with a valid veto, you must lobby the person casting the veto to withdraw
his or her veto. If a veto is not withdrawn, the action that has been vetoed must be reversed
in a timely manner.
