Starchild has been asking for this to be addressed for several days.  I am
forwarding it to the LNC list on his behalf.

I have not heard back on being able to vote as a delegate (see messages
below). Nick said during the meeting this evening that they'd try to get
this fixed for tomorrow. That's essentially the same message I got *days
ago*, that I'd be able to participate. But I'd like to know *how* that's
going to happen, and be in the loop on that conversation. Not have my
communications ignored and then find it's still not working! And what about
my votes for today? Were they counted?

When an online convention was being considered by the LNC, was it ever
stated by anyone that duly elected delegates would be disenfranchised over
technological issues, and that it was fine to proceed with it anyway?

I again request that my representative or alternate, Jeff Hewitt or Tim
Ferreira, forward this message to the LNC list. If one of them does not do
so or respond promptly, then I make the same request of the other LNC
members and alternates step in and do so.

You reportedly told Mimi Robson (my state chair and delegation chair)
several days ago, knowing that I would be calling in by phone, that I would
be able to participate in this session. That is not currently happening.

I am a legitimate elected delegate and am being *knowingly
disenfranchised*. It's
a good thing for the party that I do not believe in people suing the LP
over stuff like this!

I request that someone be designated to receive my votes and ensure they
are counted. And confirmation that the chair can now see me "raise my hand"
via phone, and recognize me in the queue like everyone else.

I am calling into the convention session by phone. I was told I would be
able to participate on this basis. Yet I have not received information on
how to vote, and cannot do so. I also cannot seem to get recognized by the
Zoom please seek to be recognized by the chair and get this issue addressed?

This is just *one* of the reasons I think this online session is
inappropriate. Alicia Mattson is right – it is unauthorized by the bylaws,
and this kind of technical issue is one of the reasons why that is a sound

It's been 30 minutes since I sent the email below, and I have not received
a response.


Please ask to be recognized by the chair and bring this up on Zoom.

Thank you,

I'm not sure the chair can see when I push *9 from my phone to be
recognized to speak. I've done this a number of times now, but it seems
like I'm not being called on, so not sure I'm in the queue.

Caryn Ann,

I am calling in by phone, and have not received instructions on how to
vote! There was just a vote on recessing for 30 minutes, in which I was not
able to vote.
