Bylaw 2.3(f) requires:

a "yes" vote by two-thirds of Certificate Issuer votes and 50%-plus-one 
Certificate Consumer votes for approval.  Votes to abstain are not 
counted for this purpose.  This requirement was met for both Certificate 
Issuers and Certificate Consumers.
at least one Certificate Issuer and one Certificate Consumer Member must 
vote in favor of a ballot for the ballot to be adopted. This requirement 
was also met.

Under Bylaw 2.3(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.

21 member companies attended the last teleconference, and quorum was 
updated accordingly. Half of currently active Members as of the start of 
voting was *10*, so quorum was*11 votes* –_quorum was met_.
