> Erik suggested adding "of the votes cast". 
Which I don't think works, also not 100% sure where he wanted that phase added.

If we say changed it to this:
"Having more than half of the votes cast of total votes is not required with Majority votes."

Is confusing as the number of votes cast is the same as the total number of votes.

If you take it to mean +1s then it's actually false in most cases eg example results 12x +1,
5x -1 > 50% +1's  or 5 +1s, 2 -1s also > 50% +1s .

It may be cultural issue here. In Australia voting is compulsory, so the term Majority means
more than 50% of total voters. The word quorum is used when it's not a majority required but
I'd rather than introduce an unfamiliar or new  term.
