Re: [ga] vote appeal
Harald and all remaining assembly members,
Yes but there were two separate ballots sent. I got two for instance.
This was particularly confusing. I understand that two ballots were sent
because Jon Weingerg dropped out in the middle of the election process.
None the less this was particularly confusing to the electorate. As a
result the election was effected by this event. I believe this is the gist
of eric's concern.
