As was pointed out in the previous thread, we don't want to over-complicate things. In that spirit, here's how things will go down. Voting begins this coming Sunday, Jan. 7 and ends the day of the GM, Saturday, Jan. 13. If it's alright with her, we'll just ask Earwen to post the results when she gets a chance on Sunday. I don't think we need to have a cut-off time other than just saying that votes are due by Saturday--so as long as the PM was sent before midnight CST on Saturday, it should count. It should be noted, that this is a secondary way of voting. If you can attend the GM and vote in person, then do so. This is only intended for those who are unable to attend. We'll do a secret ballot at the GM, and send the results to Earwen, so she can combine them with the proxy votes to come up with a final tally. I'm not concerned with cheating, so I don't think Mike and I both have to send the tallies in, but we can do so if he really wants to. Otherwise, I'd say it'd be every bit as good to have Chuck, being the secretary and official recorder, send them in. His office is uncontested, so there's no conflict of interest.
