Re: [802SEC] +++ SEC Rules Change Letter Ballot +++ Ballot on WG electronic voting


The text in 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:
         50% abstain
         40% Approve
         10% Disapprove
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.
