The information on this chart comes from information in Grand Lodge Proceedings and supplied on Masonic email message groups.

If anyone has definite information about the rules in each Grand Lodge on whether ALL Master Masters can vote in Grand Lodge, please send email to paulb'at'bessel.org so I can update this chart.
