1.      Bylaw 2.3(f) requires:

o     A "yes" vote by two-thirds of Certificate Issuer votes and by
50%-plus-one of Certificate Consumer votes. Votes to abstain are not
counted for this purpose.
*This requirement was MET for Certificate Issuers and MET for Certificate

o    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 MET*.

2.      Bylaw 2.3(g) requires that a ballot result only be considered valid
when “more than half of the number of currently active Members has
participated”. Votes to abstain are counted in determining quorum. Half of
the currently active members at the start of voting was 14, so the quorum
was 15 for this ballot.
*This requirement was MET.*

This ballot now enters the IP Rights Review Period to permit members to
review the ballot for relevant IP rights issues.
