I believe that allowing the DO NOT VOTEs to torpedo efforts to conduct business is counter-productive to the effective running of the EC. If they believe the ballot is fundamentally flawed they could give a simple NO vote and provide as the reason, "Too many to count."
Another alternative is to change the rules to require either a simple majority of all EC voting members to vote "YES", or, if there are a minimum number of votes (like 2/3 of the EC voting) and then it would be a simple majority of the YES and NO votes. With this second stick hanging over the heads of those that presently don't vote, they will be more motivated to send in their NO vote, if that is their position.
