        Why not? I hold these opinions about the processes I am
 following as a secretary while wearing my hat as a secretary. I have
 held opinions about the state of the vote for almost every vote held,
 and every non-initial CFV has had a paragraph detailing the state of
 the vote, and what I felt about it.

        Just because I am wearing an official hat does not mean I can't
 have or express _any_ opinion.

> as that can be interpreted as influencing the vote.

        This I consider silly.  Thinking that the shorter voting period
 might have influenced participation somehow skews the vote for the DPL?
 Dow sending the CFV 24 minutes after the hour also skew the votes? Or
 sending the CFV when the influence of mars is rising in the house of
 Jupiter somehow tell people who to vote for?

> In some institutes you would be fired as Secretary for doing that...

        Thank the Lord I do not belong to any such institute. On the
 other hand, if you feel like firing me, feel free to proceed.

C for yourself.
