I agree -- at the very least there should be been some feedback on each
and every form (including a "no change" option), whether
affirmative/negative, or affirmative/indifferent/negative.
I'm somewhat disappointed with the choice of voting procedures for such
a highly contentious issue -- particularly when the discussion about the
procedures seems to have had no impact -- but the official vote is the
official vote and that's that.
