About 360 votes have been received to date and the submission rate is not yet falling off.
If I had it to do over, the ballot would be simpler, but it seems to be working out okay none-the-less. So far, almost every vote has been absolutely clear in its intent. I've had to mail fewer than ten requests for clarification (mostly for empty emails or for omitted names). A few people hated filling out the examples but some thought it was a great idea -- c'est la vie.
The one surprising comment is that some newsgroup readers had filtered out all posts with the word "ternary" or "308" and, as a result, did not see the vote announcement.
There have been a handful of requests to post intermediate results. Others have assured me that is a bad idea. Accordingly, results won't be posted until all the votes are in.
I can reveal that the results are not lopsided and it is still worth a few minutes to vote.
