This is the final call for votes for the 2009 SPI board elections.

There have been (at time of writing) 48 total unique votes cast, which
is 10.835214447% of all possible votes.

If you have not rated all candidates, it is important you check this
information to ensure your vote reflects your views.

In summary:
- Not rating a candidate at all does NOT mean that they are automatically
ranked below other candidates.
- Additionally, a vote for ONE candidate is equivalent to an empty vote.

Read below for further details, and for information on how to vote in

Voting preferences
Your preference will best be shown when you specify *all candidates*, in
order of preference (i.e. "XYZWTUV", X being the most preferred). Voting
"XY" states that you prefer candidate X to Y.

* However, it does not express any preference *
* relationships for any of the other candidates. *

Namely, in an election of ABC, a vote of AB would mean you are happy
with a final result of:
- A>B>C
- C>A>B
- A>C>B
