When this was first brought up, the suggestions made implied that it
should be the Election Team to follow up, and ensure invalid votes where
counted. I don't think it should be part of the Election Committee's
responsibility to chase those whose votes got "spoiled". The
instructions appeared to me, to be quite clear. 

Perhaps we can take the instructions this year, and tweak them for next
year's use?
