It's in the charter...

"if a decision is necessary for timely progress, but after due
consideration of different opinions, consensus is not achieved, the
Chair should put a question (allowing for remote, asynchronous
participation using, for example, email and/or web-based survey
techniques) and record a decision and any objections, and consider the
matter resolved, at least until new information becomes available."
