does not constitute a vote.)  Just replying to this article should work
unless you are reading it on a mailing list, but please check the TO address.

Please remove text before the marker line below.  Voting mail is archived
by the votetakers, and hundreds of copies of the entire CFV wastes space.

Type your vote of YES or NO for each group on the line for that group.
If you do not wish to vote for a group, simply leave that line alone.
You need not worry about quoting characters which your mailer inserts.
Please type YES or NO, not Y, N, or X.  The votes are tabulated by a
program, and a valid vote is defined as the word YES or NO on the same
line as the name of the group.

You may also ABSTAIN in place of YES/NO - this will not affect the outcome.
Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program.  The
votetaker will respond to your received ballots with a personal acknowledge-
ment by mail - if you do not receive one within several days, try again.
It is your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.

sci.agriculture.livestock.birds.ratites Ballot <SALBR-0001> (Don't remove this)

Give your real name here:

[Your Vote]  Group
[  YES    ]  sample.group.you.support

-=-=-=-=-=- Don't Delete Anything Between These Lines =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  You may only vote once, regardless
of how many accounts you may have.  Only one vote per account, regardless
of how many people use that account.  Later votes replace previous ones.
Forwarded or proxy votes are invalid.  100 more YES votes than NO votes
and 2/3 of all votes being YES are the requirements for group creation.


Anything other than the official ballot may be rejected by the automatic
vote-counting software.  The votetaker will respond to your received vote
with a semi-automated acknowledgement by e-mail - if you do not receive
one within several days, try again.  It's your responsibility to make
sure your vote is registered correctly.

Addresses and votes of all voters will be published in the final voting
results list.

Duplicate votes will be resolved in favor of the most recent valid vote.

Anonymous votes will not be accepted.  Votes mailed by WWW/HTML/CGI forms are
considered anonymous votes.  (The vote must be mailed directly from the
voter to the votetaker.)

In cases where voting fraud is determined to have occurred, it is standard
operating procedure to delete ALL votes submitted by the violator.

Anyone who distributes pre-filled ballots, shortcut instructions, or
modified copies of this CFV commits voting fraud.  If you give anyone
copies of the CFV, the copies must be whole and unmodified.

When in doubt, ask the votetaker.

All votes received by August 31st, 23:59 UTC have been counted and ACKed.
Vote acknowledgements sent to the following addresses have bounced.  These
votes *have* been counted, but I have been unable to reply to their mail.
If you voted, but you have NOT received an ACK *and* your name is NOT listed
below, then your vote was probably lost somewhere in the ether.  Please
