Same idea I had. For the future, it seems more fair to me to go one region,
1 vote (and won't matter if it is the RC or REC, let *them* figure that out
between them if there are 2).

If they survey the region, yes, should be same vote then.

I grant the rules this time *clearly* allow both to vote so some regions voted
twice, but I suggest next time we look at that one and possibly ammend it.
t's probably been this way forever and I'm just noticing it for the first
time. No harm no foul this time as votes were cast in accordance with the
rules. If we wanted it changed, we needed to do that before the election

Michael, Bjorn is right. We should make this a topic of discussion once the
election is over.
