The from address in the test message were.  Bounce software took the "error

Or if it needs one at all... any discussion or reporting of results could be on
the list that the proposal was initially made on... (and the web page, I liked
that idea)

OTOH, if everybody knew to watch the vote mailing list for call for votes, that
might make things easier on people who get volumes and volumes of mail.

only one alias is needed for all votes (I wouldn't imagine there being that
many votes being run at one time)
