Re: [council] The Way Forward - Choices

Dennis and All,

I'm not a lawyer, so my opinion here is what I myself think 
is most reasonable.

My option is 2.
I think we should backtrack to the most recent point where 
process can be proven(shown) to be valid. This, I think, is 
"the end of voting in round 1" with correcting the vote which 
was miscounted.

Option 1 seems to be logically strange because it purges a 
round which can be validly counted. If validly countable 
round is purged, all the election so far should be purged....
which I cannot accept because of the waste of time end effort.

Thus, my second option is 3. Although some good faith vote 
would be discarded, this situation would be logically
