Re: [802SEC] myProject Change to Ballot Voting


Nice change.
However, my opinion would be that while it conforms to the spirit of the rules, it does not conform to the "letter of the law".

That is, an e-mail from the system is not an e-mail from the voter.
(Note that the parenthetical is written in the form of "i.e." rather than "e.g.") Therefore a change needs to be made to similar to what is shown here:

   In order for a Do Not Approve vote to be changed to an Approve or
   Abstain vote, the Sponsor shall obtain and provide to RevCom written
   confirmation from each voter (by letter, fax, or electronic mail/_,
   or myBallot_/) that indicates concurrence with any change of his or
   her vote.

Best regards,

This message is being sent to advise you of an important change that is
coming to myProject Sponsor Balloting.  Formal communication will be going
out to all balloters and WG Chairs later this week.

Many years ago when we began developing myBallot, balloters asked for a
way to change their vote from Disapprove to Approve (or Abstain) while the
ballot was not open.  While that functionality was not developed at that
time, we have had users asking for this feature.  A few months ago, a team
got together to determine the best method to implement this feature for
the Sponsor Balloting process. That team decided how the feature would be
implemented so it would best satisfy the balloter, the chair running the
ballot, and the RevCom submission process.  Therefore, I am happy to
announce that the Sponsor Ballot Vote Change feature has been developed
and is now in the myProject system.

Sponsor Ballot Vote Change allows a sponsor balloter to make a vote
change, from Disapprove to either Approve or Abstain, after the ballot has
closed.  The balloter simply logs onto myProject, myBallot Activity and
changes their vote. This eliminates the need for the balloter to email the
sponsor or working group chair with a vote change, the system will do that

To help you better understand how the functionality works, I have attached
Power Point slide deck.

Pat, since we have a status meeting on Friday, we can discuss further on
the roll out date which is tentatively scheduled for September 14th.
