    51 votes? Hmm
    Most likely another instance of a proxy voting... of course, fairly understandable with the hidden votes, but you would think it'd be very easy to check if that seat had already been voted for or not with whomever was being proxied... Laziness is around the house it seems!

    The Speaker will have to rerun the poll if the result has one vote separating the options.

    That will mean finding out who has voted, finding out who has voted but should not have voted, and then correcting the results, with the Community Team not being the fastest workers it will be quicker to re-run the poll.

    Can Financier or Adam not see votes. Just screenshot them to Fez who will rule and adjust.

    No, I will ask for a list of voters as it is just as possible to have voting fraud the second time as well.

    If all leaders consent can we end the poll early since there's clearly a full turnout.

    Not necessarily, could be two seats with two votes

    Hey.. the fact that we had Carney give him a tour of the BOE's bullion vaults earlier is completely coincidental. He told us he likes museums and dislikes security checks so we took care of them.
    I wonder how many trees one could buy with a gold bullion bar...

    If required I could look at the vote numbers, which is what SF does I believe- but I unfortunately can't see who voted for who!

    He has to check them anyway since the number of votes is greater than 50. No harm done.

    Could you please PM me (and toronto353 to make sure that nothing corrupt is going on) a list of people who have voted each way so that I can check they are eligible (and remove the ineligible voter)?
