That's what I meant by chairman... the person presiding over the meeting. I
guess that can be confusing though... maybe 'secretary of the organization
or chairman of the meeting' ??

I would have thought that when releasing the results you just don't list the
votes (like for the debian logo). Maybe we should add something to allow
for electronic voting then... I don't see us sending out real ballots
anytime soon :)
" At all meetings, except for the election of officers and directors, all
votes shall be viva voce, or electronically cast except that for election of
officers ballots shall be provided and there shall not appear any place on
such ballot any mark or marking that might tend to indicate the person who
cast such ballot. If the ballots for the election of officers are cast
electronically, then the names of the people submitting ballots shall not be
used for any purpose, and shall not appear in the results of the voting."
And yes, I do hate how my mailer splits the lines...
