Timing for Electronic ballots

I believe that Howard makes a good point.  While I would not object to a
short turnaround electronic vote where time is critical, and the late vote
is not due to negligance on the part of the interested parties, I would like
to see a general policy implemented of allowing for at least a two week
period for votes where it is not absolutely critical to have a result
earlier.  Three or four days before the  ballot closes seems like the right
time frame for sending out a reminder that votes are still outstanding.

Howard, can you put the topic of electronic balloting timing on the agenda
for the Monday morning opening SEC meeting?  Thank you.

Best regards,
