RE: Multiple votes from Bill Wall
Steve and Board members,
I got confused in the Options and made a mistake in selecting the wrong option (B), but put the right reasons that supported Option A (namely the fixed length). I was not using the template and mixed up options. Andy Balinsky pointed out my error and confusion, and as soon as I realized I had the wrong option, I re-sent the correct ballot (in template format) filled out correctly for the right option that went with the right reason.

Subject: Multiple votes from Bill Wall
Today you sent two separate ballots to the Board list. Your first ballot, which was valid, seemed to prefer Option B, but then 2 hours later, you sent a DIFFERENT ballot that switched to Option A, and you changed your reasons.
According to the voting rules, the first valid vote from a Board member is used and cannot be reversed:
8. No changes to a vote will be accepted; no reclama.
While these rules are pretty clear, it would be useful to be clear about what your real intention was, and why the switch occurred.
