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
