Re: [802SEC] +++ SEC Rules Change Letter Ballot +++ Ballot on WG electronic voting
The text in 188.8.131.52.1 is not clear. It gives the impression that if 51% of
the Working Group membership returns a ballot then the ballot is valid.
That could be:
And the measure would pass.
I'm willing to have this sort of thing happen at a Plenary Meeting.
I'm not willing to have it happen by letter ballot on matters that should
be decided in a meeting.
If the text is changed such that non-returned votes are considered to be
negative on mail ballots then I will change my vote.
