Dear Louis:

I disagree for two reasons.  1. The ballot was not received because of a 
technical problem, Michael had not had time to properly add William to the 
list of persons permitted to post to the list.  2. According to Andrew, the 
"Registrars Constituency Charter" requires a minimum of seven days for the 
election. (Please see attachment, below.)

Inasmuch as the ballot was received well within the seven days, the results 
should be certified.

Regards, BobC
