  • IEEE 802.15 Voting members have an obligation to vote. Not returning two valid letter ballots in a sequence of three letter ballots will automatically terminate voting rights.

  • "No" votes require the submission of detailed comments as defined in the IEEE rules for Sponsor Ballots to be counted as valid.  Abstentions are only counted as valid if they are based on "lack of expertise".



Please read and follow these step by step instructions to complete and submit your vote on IEEE P802.15 Letter Ballot 54. 

  1. Download and read a copy of the IEEE P802.15 Operations Manual.
  1. Understand your Voting Options

    ___ YES

    ___ YES: with comments.

    ___ NO: at least 1 comment which must be satisfied must be submitted.

    ___ ABSTAIN, Reason:__________________________________________________

  2. Understand how to classify your comments as Editorial (E), or Technical (T).

(E) Editorial comments reflect recommended changes in the text or content of the Standard.

(T) Technical comments reflect recommended changes in the text which affect the functionality and/or intent of the Standard.


If you have comments to submit, download  P802-15-Operations-Manual_Comment_Entry_Form and enter your comments.

Please be sure to fill in ALL columns. If you vote NO, you MUST submit at least 1 comment with a proposed resolution containing sufficient detail so that the specific wording of the changes that will cause you to change your vote to YES can readily be determined. Place a "Yes" in the "Must be satisfied" column for comments that caused the NO vote.

  1. Submit Your Vote by Email

    1. You MUST submit the following information in the body of your email or your ballot will be considered invalid.

      1. AFFILIATION; you MUST declare your affiliation, in the body of the email and include the statement: "I am affiliated with [name of affiliation]" or the statement "I am not affiliated with any organization"

      2. COMMENTS; If you vote NO, you MUST submit at least 1 comment, which MUST be satisfied.

    2. Attach your completed P802-15-Operations-Manual_Comment_Entry_Form file to your email ballot.

    1. Email your vote. If not acknowledged within 2 business days-resend, BUT check first that you have included your affiliation, followed the subject field format, included a comment in the case of a NO vote and that your email contains no privileged or confidential information statements. Be advised that an acknowledgement (ACK) only verifies receipt of your email and is not an indication that your vote is valid. Your vote may later be disqualified if it is discovered it has not complied with required Policy and Procedure.
