Hi Naomi, laudable data mining. Double and triple checking is critical given the number of recent policy changes.  I was surprised when Jake acknowledge on the list that he was refused a ballot. I was not approached for a ballot by anybody not on the list provided by the Secretary. Thus, I refused no one.

Are you volunteering to run the 2014 Noisebridge BoD election v2? I am happy to share my experience with our chosen electioneer.
