Yes. The Revenue Rulings require the membership to vote on the resolution and this can be done at a meeting or by written ballot (unless prohibited in the governing documents).

Arguably, the resolution could be included in the secret written ballot now used in connection with the election of directors.
The term absentee ballot is not used in the California statutes. Conceptually, all written ballots are potentially absentee because they are written and may be returned by mail.
Pursuant to the community association election law, all ballots are written and elections are conducted pursuant to a double envelope secret ballot system. (Civil Code §1363.03) Ballots may be mailed or delivered by hand. (Civil Code § 1363.03(e)(2))
