Hi all,

I have two question on the balloting instructions


4.1.1 50% return rate

i guess the 75% figure in this section should read 50%? or i misunderstood something

[Vivek G Gupta] You are right.

In fact I just noticed some other 75% figures as well that should be changed to 50% (in 4.1.2 and 4.1.4)

Shall post an updated document later today.


4.1.2 75% approval rate

[Vivek G Gupta] should actually be 50%


What if 90% of the voting members vote "Abstain?

[Vivek G Gupta]

You mean 90% of the WG members (who attend the WG regularly and have voting rights because of regular attendance)  vote Abstain due to lack of Technical Expertise…


Would the rule be still applied over the 10% that have voted "approved" or "disapproved"? 

 Because 75% of the "approve" vote on 10% of voters expresssing something else than "abstain" will not be sufficient to my eyes to determine that the ballot has passed

[Vivek G Gupta]

Yes, the rule would still be applied over the 10% that voted Approve or Disapprove.

This is an unusual situation (IMO unlikely to occur in 802.21) but that’s how the rule would apply.


Best Regards
