This is an "if-voted" poll.  This means you can send email to

	igc-voters at igcaucus.org	

with the subject, "sample igc Voting style vote",
and with a message that says:

          eVote who

to receive a list of those who voted.  Of course, everyone else
on the igc-voters list can see if you have voted too.

Warnings: Although eVote will not reveal your vote to the other
members of the voting community, the system administrator of the
computer that stores your vote can quite easily see the voting
records of individuals. Also, there is the possibility that your
ballot can be seen by a "snooper", someone who intercepts your
ballot in transit.

The integrity of the poll, i.e., the accuracy of the count, is
susceptible to being tampered with by the system administrator
of the computer running the eVote(R)/Clerk software.

Both the privacy of your vote and the integrity of the poll are
susceptible to attack at your own computer.
