The [[Election Policy]] is amended as follows:
 
 
informal phrasing:
 
 
 
* In III.3, make explicit that there is an expectation that the election committee produces a certain kind of report after an election:  the Ballot, Exhibits, and Results as shown on [[Meetings_(2019–2020)]]
 
* [[Election_policy#ARTICLE_VII_-_BALLOTS | article VII]] -- in VII.1, VII.2 and VII.5, give committee a bit more time just to be realistic -- I suggest 48 hours, 48 hours, and 72 hours
