Voting rights are at based on status at the start of the ballot. 

This accounts for the case, which will happen here, of us having a TC 
meeting next Monday, before the ballot closes.  Members may gain or lose 
voting rights based on attendance or nonattendance at that meeting.  But 
that does not impact the in-process ballot.

For the LoA case if you wanted to return early, you could send a note to 
the list stating that, and I'd make sure Chet was aware of it.
