I don't know - the ballots get sent out with clear instructions and nobody 
among the 200+ people who got one complained about them being confusing.  
If you take the time to read it through - which anyone should, IMO, since 
this vote is important, not just a random mail clogging up the INBOX - 
then it's pretty clear to me what the instructions said.

If it didn't seem necessary then I don't see why it is now. 

> That's no reason we shouldn't do the right thing now.

The "right thing" to do is something that could be dragged out for a long 
time, and IMO it is disrepectful to the people who handle the vote in the 
first place.  They spend enough time on a basically simple issue as it is.  
It works with a script.  The script counts votes.  We use computers to 
avoid manual labor.  Why go back ? Let's have some respect for the people 
who try to follow the rules and do a good job of it as objectively as 
possible.  Rules that were put forth by the community.
