A quorum is the minimum number of members of a deliberative assembly (a body that uses parliamentary procedure, such as a legislature) necessary to conduct the business of that group. According to Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, the "requirement for a quorum is protection against totally unrepresentative action in the name of the body by an unduly small number of persons." Crittenden County currently has 13 members who represent different areas of the county. The court meets monthly on the 3rd Tuesday at 9am unless rescheduled. The County Judge presides over the meetings and has no voting authority but has the authority to veto.
