Interesting.  I interpreted those figured to mean that -- assuming we
have 3,000 members -- the vast majority of 2,928 didn't care what the
name was or didn't hear about the election, while the remainder was
split roughly down the middle; 51% of those who voted wanted to keep the
existing name, and 49% wanted to change the name, but had various
differing opinions on what it should be.
