Voting has ENDED for the Email Ballot 2018-19: AGREE TO "JC" DECISIONS

All names are listed alphabetically by surname.

Motion: Move that the Libertarian National Committee agree to be bound
by the decisions of the top-seven vote-getters for the Judicial
Committee at the 2018 Convention as if they were elected in the normal
course of convention business and follow the procedures and rules set
forth in our Bylaws.  It is acknowledged that this agreement is not
binding upon any member or affiliate.

Co-Sponsors:  Harlos, Longstreth, Merced, Phillips

Voting "aye":  Bishop-Henchman, Hagan, Harlos, Lark, Longstreth,
Merced, Nekhaila, Olsen, Phillips, Redpath

Voting "nay": Bilyeu, Goldstein, Lyons, Mattson, Van Horn

Express Abstention:  None

No Vote Cast:  Sarwark, Smith

With a final vote tally of 10-5 the motion PASSES.

Ballot Notes:  Goldstein voted no twice (but it of course was only
counted once).   Region 1 Alternate Bowden had also voted yes, but
Region 1 Representative Longstreth’s yes vote is the one that was
counted. Region 5 Alternate Hogarth had also voted yes, but Region 5
Representative Lark’s yes vote is the one that was counted.  Region 8
Representative O’Donnell did not vote and explicitly stated that he
yielded to Region 8 Alternate Lyons’ no vote.  Region 8 Alternate
Lyons re-affirmed his no vote.

Please notify me of any discrepancies.
