Q Is there any authority for a member of a board of a public entity to change or reverse a vote after the board meeting has adjourned but prior to the adoption of the minutes of that meeting?

A There is no statutory authority for an individual member of a board to rescind or change his/her vote after a vote has been taken and a meeting adjourned. This would not be allowed under general rules of parliamentary procedure either, and would amount to circumventing the purposes of the Open Meetings Act. The board, as a whole, could address the matter on a new motion, such as a motion to reconsider. (Attorney General’s Opinion to McDonald, dated May 21, 2012)
