Actually, it was a little closer. ;-)

The time in the message header is the time that the message was opened the last
time for editing by Golded. What counts is the time it "arrived" at the
election coordinator's system. That was at 20:56:30. (UTC+1) Three and a hal
minutes to spare. ;-)

The proof that it was "in" lies in te time stamp of the ACK, which is 20:59:22.
Time zone information in the message says TZUTC 0100. So the ACK was created at
19:59:22 UTC. 38 seconds before closing time. ;-)

Cheers, Michiel
