I created a flowchart about the Standard Voting Procedure [1], but I had
problems understanding this bit:

Isn't "reject" the same as "does not pass"?
And what means "being that 50% is not a majority"? (50% of what?)

As I showed in the graph, I understood the quoted text as follows:

 > If more than 50% of the votes cast for YES, the motion passes,
 > if not, it is rejected.
