Ending votes early

Hi folks,

	After re-reading the draft (prompted by Branden on IRC), I
 think I don't know how to define "when the vote is no longer in
 doubt", since people can always revote.

	Say, with 1000 voters, on day 1, 800 people voted option A
 over option B, and 100 people vote option B over option A. On day 20,
 899 people revote, and change their vote.

	At what point of time could the vote have been closed and had
 the same results as the actual vote?

	I suggest we strike the clause about the secretary's ability
 to end votes early. 

Marvin the Nature Lover spied a grasshopper hopping along in the
grass, and in a mood for communing with nature, rare even among
full-fledged Nature Lovers, he spoke to the grasshopper, saying:
"Hello, friend grasshopper.  Did you know they've named a drink after
you?" "Really?" replied the grasshopper, obviously pleased.  "They've
named a drink Fred?"
