As a friend you could vote for them. It is Subject line and LSF number specific. I have no idea why I just wasted my time responding to you though.
I'll vote for you since you haven't received your ballot! How would non-internet members know how to vote if they couldn't read the "E" newsletters with the the proposal or that a vote was even taking place? The vote means nothing and if "passed" will simply be annulled or ignored.
