Ballot 87 Text

This is an instant run-off ballot to eliminate all but two of the following proposals (listed in alphabetical order):

• DigiCert Proposal

• Microsoft Proposal

• No Change Proposal

• PayPal Proposal

• Trend Micro Proposal

Each voting member may assign the numbers 1 to 5 to the proposals in order of preference (1 indicating their most preferred choice).

Each member who votes shall (at least) assign the number ‘1’, and may assign further numbers up to and including ‘5’.

Votes ranked ‘1’ shall be counted and the proposal with the fewest votes shall be eliminated.

The votes of the corresponding members that voted ‘1’ for a proposal eliminated shall be reassigned to the proposal ranked ‘2’ by those members.

Where a member has not identified a proposal with rank ‘2’, his or her vote shall not be reassigned.

This procedure shall be repeated, counting reassigned votes, until just two proposals remain.

Votes must clearly indicate their preferred options.

Unclear responses will not be counted.

The latest vote received from any representative of a voting member before the close of the voting period will be counted.

Votes on this Ballot 87 must be cast by posting an on-list reply to this thread.
