I'm not sure that I see the need. If there is a quick and definitive 
vote, then just call a vote, give a time limit of a day, count them up 
and move on it. If people can't make it in time for the vote, too bad. 
That's the exact same way it would be with reps anyway.

The other problem with reps as a head responsible person for a group is 
that often, people ask the rep to pass something on / do something, when 
that person could have done it in the same amount of time just by going 
ahead and doing it -- and the rep might even be too busy to get around 
to it for weeks, if it's a particularly bad time.
