(no subject)

From a conversation last night; is there a term for the practice of repeatedly holding votes on a subject until The Powers That Be get the answer they want? Particularly when the desired results are a change that would be very hard to reverse.

It seems to be quite a common trick within organisations that have some internal democracy. Should all such organisations have a rule that sufficiently similar subjects can't be voted on at more than a certain frequency?
