Electronic system for Synod votes
Posted: 07 Feb 2008 @ 00:00
FOR THE first time at the General Synod, when it meets in London next week, members will cast their more important votes electronically. Simple votes will still be made by a show of hands, but when numbers have to be counted, an electronic handset will be used.
This will mean an end to waiting while Synod staff count up to 400 or more raised hands, and to members filing out through the lobbies as the Houses of Bishops, Clergy, and Laity are counted separately.
