Sorry, John. Was I number 1 on your list of likely stragglers?

You? Nah. While you normally post a ballot on the last day, you rarely (if ever) posted a one at the last second before.

It's really not a big deal for me, but I have to post the results at 10 now just in case someone wanted to challenge your ballot.

The election is now over. Results will be posted in 2 hours.

... just in case someone wanted to challenge your ballot.

It's a little hard to mount an effective challenge to the highest consensus ballot.

Well, looking back at my ballots for this, I saw at least one that got in 2 minutes before the deadline, so it's definitely rarely. I think I was good about giving warnings if I was running late, though.

I agree wholeheartedly with djrelays in post #97 - I never thought of it that way.

Going forward, ballots should have justifications. I'll make sure to note that in the ballot thread when it's posted.
