You miss one point. Ivan raised an objection to having one person
(specifically the Secretariat) count the ballots. While it is true that
you could post them to Ken Stubbs, but Ken is a candidate.
It has been my experience that this kind of group (PAB and CORE) can be
very suspicious in the early, formative period. They insist on all kinds
Thus, if you sent ballots to Ken *or* Ivan, there are those who will be
suspicious that you did not send *all* of them. That is why we specified
that the ballots be mailed to two separate and independent
individual. Then each recipient reports to the other and confirms who
voted and the totals for each candidate.
Thank you for authorizing me to send out ballots. However, there is a bit
of a problem. All I could do would be to send it out to all recipients on
the list. You have a separate list of voting members.
Let me think about it and be back to you.
While the *early* bird gets the worm,
the *second* mouse gets the cheese.
