4.1.2 Voting rules

At times, it may become necessary for the Sponsor to render a decision that cannot be made prior

to the close of one plenary but must be made prior to the opening of the following plenary. Such

decisions may be made using electronic balloting. Provision shall be made for the IEEE 802

LMSC membership to observe and comment on Sponsor electronic ballots. All comments from

those who are not members of the Sponsor shall be considered. Commenters who are not

members of the Sponsor are urged to seek a Voting Member of the Sponsor (normally their WG

or TAG Chair) to include the viewpoint of the commenter in their vote.

The Sponsor Chair, or a Sponsor member designated by the Sponsor Chair (usually a Vice

Chair), shall determine the duration of the ballot, issue the ballot by e-mail and tally the votes

after the ballot is closed. Sponsor Voting Members shall return their vote and comments by


The minimum duration of an electronic ballot shall be 10 days1. For urgent matters once

sufficient response is received to clearly decide a matter, the ballot may be closed early. This

allows a decision to be reach in less than 10 days. Ballots where the possibility of an early close

exists must be clearly marked accordingly. Otherwise, the tally of votes shall not be made until at

least 24 hours after the close of the ballot to allow time for delivery of the e-mail votes.
