Subject: RE: User Interface Markup Language (UIML) TC IPR Transition Ballot

To all Voting Representatives:

Please note that a problem was identified earlier today (26 March) with the Kavi ballot that resulted in the removal of
all individual/associate members from the list of eligible voters. The voting list has been restored; however
individual/associate members may not have had their vote properly restored. I am asking each individual/associate member
noted below to cast a ballot via email; I will announce the official results. 

My apologies for the inconvenience.
