Yes, if votes count, we need a written ballot, voting deadlines, and
electronic/written tallies.  Or if votes happen on a call, voters need
the ballot in advance.  Might need more rules like quorum and proxy.

I do believe that the board is editorial/advisory only.  For example, if
the board votes 9-1 against a new CNA, can MITRE just approve the CNA
anyway?  I'm not suggesting MITRE would just ignore board input
(especially a 9-1 opinion), but before we go to the effort of setting up
voting rules, I'd like to be clear what power board votes actually have.
