Hasn't it been reported that no write-in has ever made it to the 
Symposium awards list in all of the years of the Symposium?  
Why are write-ins proposed now if we know them to have been a 
failure for years?  Write-ins are regional things, usually indicating 
irises that don't grow well all over the country, and that is the 
reason they failed to get on the Symposium ballot in the first place.

Look at the percentage of the actual voters in each region.  It is 
pitifully low, and in order to get it up, the beardless and median folk 
have got to be represented - either on the all-inclusive symposium 
ballot or a separate ballot of their own sponsored by AIS.   Every 
class of iris has got to be recognized.  Many people don't vote the 
ballot because their irises are not on the ballot.

The counting may not be so bad since the RVP's handle the 
regional count and then forward their results to Gerry Snyder.
