Spanish term or phrase: turno voto explicativo
This is from the transcript of a meeting. A vote is about to be taken and the chairman says, "Procedemos a votar. Hay dos turnos voto explicativo solicitado." Then the vote is immediately taken. This phrase is confusing to me syntactically. Also what is an "abstención explicativa"?
Thanks

"There will be two rounds of voting, and an explanation (or
Explanation:
a qualified vote) is required."
I found the term in the Puerto Rican Supreme Court proceedings, where "voto explicativo" is equivalent to a qualified vote (i.e., qualified by a learned opinion issued by the Magistrate concerned). The other kinds of vote are "voto de conformidad" and "voto disidente".

there are two voters who requested to include an explanation


Explanation:
It sounds to me like the chairman announced: "we are proceeding to take a vote, there are two voters who requested to include an explanation" ...probably about why they are voting the way they are doing it... Then after the first person made their explanation, the second one decided to abstain from giving theirs.
