I an not sure what you mean.  Vote to initiate any vote?  If so how  
does that help the people who are absent?

Or vote to initiate a delayed vote?

In either case, wouldn't this then be a specific act of  
disenfranchisement?  I.e. we decide to vote despite the fact that  
people are not present as opposed to merely being enabled to vote  
because of quorum and put into extended period voting because the  
absent council member(s) could change the result in a significant way.

I think that is one of the virtues of an automatic process in that  
there is no decision for us to make that could be construed as
