All -

There's a mismatch between the definition of "simple majority" in the
Bylaws and the requirement for trapping "abstains" for electronic
ballots as described in the OP.  Rather than risk having to redo this
ballot,  I'm going with the safer bet in requiring people to actively
submit abstentions (rather than by silent assumption).

Below is the modified and more compliant version of the ballot:

MOTION: To change the name of the "User Driven and Volunteered Personal
Information Tech Work Group (UDVPI-Tech)" to the "Information Sharing
Work Group (Info Sharing WG)".

Rationale: The group believes this name more accurately captures their
purpose as outlined in their charter [1] as well as being a more
effective way to communicate.  It is also noted that they no longer need
the "Tech" moniker in the name.

Options:

 A. Reply with any discussion on this motion prior to voting.

 B. Reply to this message with a "YES" if you support this change.

 C. Reply to this message with a  "NO" if you do not support this
      change.  Also, please include your rationale for your "no" vote.

 D. Reply to this message with an "ABSTAIN" if you abstain.

The deadline for voting is Wednesday, September 30th at 23:59 UTC.

This vote requires a Simple Majority to pass (i.e.  more than 50% of
votes received - excluding
abstentions).

Thanks in advance,
Trent
