No, thanks. I want to keep the topics focused on issues in the US
and electronic voting machines. I already had to turn down one
person who said his organization represented the voice of the voter.
How his organization could be annointed as such is beyond me.
Anyway, his point was in favor of instant runoff voting. While I
don't object to that concept, I did not invite him because it was not
relevant. His issue was a policy issue, and I'm dealing with
mechanism.

The meeting will be open to the public, so feel free to attend and
participate from the audience.

Best regards,
Arthur
