Under Bylaw 2.2(g), a ballot result will be considered valid only when more than half of the number of currently active Members has participated. Votes to abstain are counted in determining a quorum.  Half of currently active Members as of the start of voting is 10, so quorum was 11 votes.  27 votes (including abstentions) were cast - quorum was met.

Bylaw 2.2(f) requires a yes vote by two-thirds of CA votes and 50%-plus-one browser votes for approval.  Votes to abstain are not counted for this purpose.  This requirement was met for both CAs and browsers.

At least one CA Member and one browser Member must vote in favor of a ballot for the ballot to be adopted.  This requirement was met

Ballot 200 passes.

Because this Ballot was for a change to the Forum's Bylaws, and not a change to a Final Guideline or Final Maintenance Guideline, there will be no Review Period notice sent under our IPR Policy.  The Bylaws change takes effect immediately.
