+<h2 id="preparing_for_a_vote">Preparing for a Vote</h2>
+<p>Before calling a vote it is important to ensure that the community is given time
to
+discuss the upcoming vote. This will be done by posting an email to the list
+indicating the intention to call a vote and the options available. By the time
+a vote is called there should already be [consensus in the community][4]. The vote 
+itself is, normally, a formality.</p>
+<h2 id="calling_a_vote">Calling a Vote</h2>
+<p>Once it is time to call the vote a mail is posted with a subject starting 
+with "{VOTE]". This enables the community members to ensure they do not miss
+an important vote thread. It also indicates that this is not consensus building
+but a formal vote.</p>
+<h3 id="casting_your_vote">Casting Your Vote</h3>
+<p>The notation used in voting is:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>+1 Yes I agree </li>
+<li>0 I have no strong opinion </li>
+<li>-1 I object on the following grounds</li>
+</ul>
+<p>If you object you must support your objection and provide an alternative course

+of action that you are willing and able to implement (where appropriate).</p>
