You started the voting period on a specific ballot that has a specific 
That means you cannot make any changes without invoking a new 7-days 
discussion period. Unfortunately, since you started the voting period 
there is nothing you can do but either let the ballot fail or withdraw 
it. Withdrawing a ballot is a new addition to the Bylaws in section 2.3 (4)

According to the Bylaws, the voting period ends 7 days after the voting 
starts, so that would be 7 days from TODAY (2023-10-19), which means 
that the voting ends at *2023-10-26*. The information at the bottom of 
the page should have been updated.

I'd appreciate a confirmation from at least another person that is 
familiar with the Bylaws about whether my interpretation is accurate or not.

Best regards,
