My concern is that if the vote is close the chair may influence the outcome by either extending the time to vote or following up selectively with voters that he thinks may vote the way he prefers.
Setting a definite time period for a vote is long established practice and should only be extended for technical reasons that affect the voters ability to cast their vote - not to allow additional time to secure a majority of eligible voters.
Bob, I understand your concerns, but I think we have them covere. I will set a definite period for the ballot. There is no intent to extend it, but the chair can do so if needed. Some voting members don't subscribe to the SUO list, and others may filter it. With these new voting rules, it is all the more important all members receive and have the opportunity to cast a vote. If I don't receive an acknowledgement within 1-week, I will seek to reach the member to ensure it was received.

You can send reminders as often as you like but they should go to the suo list and not to individual voters.
