Subject: RE: Emergency Management TC IPR Transition Ballot

To all member voting representatives:

The transition ballot was incorrectly set up to allow for only YES or NO votes;
our rules require that the ballot allow for YES, NO, or ABSTAIN votes. The
original ballot has been closed and a new ballot established here:

If you have already cast your vote you will need submit your vote once again; my
apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.
