Compare it to the news.groups rules, where you need 2/3 Yes, and also 100  
more Yes than No.

This is similar: there's a certain minimal number you need to qualify at  
all, and also a percentage you must achieve as well.

Say you have to meet a quorum of 10, and also 2/3. Then

Yes   No   Win
 4     4    No
 6     6    No
 9     1    No
10     0    Yes
10     5    Yes
10     6    No
20     6    Yes
