Why independantly ?. why not in conjunction ?
ie folks at lca vote and people who do not /cannot attend do it online ?

Not sure .. I would guess it is related directly to the "rules" of the group..
some explicity state all or nothing.. some nothing at all..

There have been a number of threads started in this list regards the
constitution.. and voting.. didnt see an outcome or changes if any ?

Personally I would like to see just general rantings..notes of what things
have been discussed, point form.. things on the boil..
Doesnt need to be huge detail..just enough to keep all the members 
aware the committee is working hard :)..
