I refuse to change a voting system after the voting processes has
already started. We are using the same tested and proven system as
used for the previous election and changing at at the last moment is in
my opinion not a wise decision. I have no problem with discussions for
a different system, but that should be done seperately (as part of
the by-laws revision perhaps) and not be rushed.

If the board really wants to do that I'll reconsider my position as
secretary and board member.
