Obviously, you mean between one and five, as there are that many options.

"Actual text"? As opposed to what? Maybe you mean the complete text, or
perhaps leave the adjective off altogether... Also, you don't need the

Also, it might be nice to include a small summary of the effect of each of
the proposals. For example:
A: Clarifies status of non-technical documents. Creates Foundation
Documents class which requires 3:1 majority to change and includes the
Social Contract and the DFSG.
B: Clarifies status of non-technical documents. Does *not* create a class
of Foundation Documents.
C: Clarifies status of non-technical documents. Creates Foundation
Documents class which requires 3:1 majority to change and includes _only_
the Social Contract, and *not* the DFSG.
Additionally, you might want to note somewhere in the ballot that all
three of these proposals require a 3:1 super-majority in order to pass (as
they modify the constitution).
Hope this helps!
