That's interesting, Kevin.

I'm not sure I should volunteer, both due to time constraints and
possible conflict of interest.

> 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.
