    Unbelievable. This vote is invalid.

    I suspect that while rushing, Lyle made an innocent mistake.
    Maybe someone could stay up late to bring his attention to it?
    I suggest that because I think he's busy this evening (BC time).

    It should have been voted on two days ago, but Vlad wouldn't order it done. And if Lyle is busy, it's because he wasn't consulted on the timing of the meeting, despite having to do 90% of the work for it.

    Another point of order... voting has been called, but I don't see a seconder?
    It seems this whole process is being so badly rushed (for no apparent reason) that we don't follow a single proper procedure anymore.

    We have not required a seconder for voting to start for 7.5 years that I have been President at least and I don't recall that it was required for the 2 years that I was masters rep either.

    I think Chris pointed that the motion itself was not even seconded!

    I deny that I had anything (from an admin point of view) had anything to do either with the vote to overturn the chair - which under parliamentary procedure prevents voting on the motion - or on either re-opening or closing this poll.

    While I will not name names, I had inquiries from VMs and I told them to wait until resolution of the point of order before voting since only if the chair's ruling was upheld could voting resume. One of those who chose not to vote until the point of order and the vote to either uphold or overrule the chair's ruling was myself and I had a perfect right to refrain from voting until the point of order / chair challenge was resolved. However by closing the poll early I was thereby disenfranchised on this vote.

    But no - it is untrue to say I made an "innocent mistake" since I made no action on this at all other than to close Thread 8 (the Voting Booth on the FIDE election) at the appointed time. I have done nothing at all on THIS thread other than to open the voting booth which I should NOT have done as the point of order / chair challenge had not been resolved.

    [Special Note: I note in passing that Mr Gary Hua is a former Assembly member and for reasons I'm unclear on was still listed as a VM on our permissions but is in fact now a past VM and his permissions on the forum should now be 'registered user' thus making it 22-20 with 2 abstentions and quite a few non-votes.]
