Can you show me in the bylaw/guideline where it says electronic votes must
be counted a day before? The guidelines says close a day before which is
fine, however noncom has a choice to determine when to count otherwise then
their coordinating role isn't as coordinating enough. However if nomcom
says here that it's a board decision to determine when to count votes then
no problem.

I don't see any technology changes here, and don't foresee any abnormal
logistical changes either. Everything that will be done is what should have
been done. Unless you say it takes hours to unlock the votes after the
three trustees sign

-1 if the system you refer is what we are just talking about. However +1 if
it's about moving 100% to online.
