Again, I agree Alan. Not all measures of a democratic government, are ideal.
Seek balance, governance and better functionality.

Asunto: Re: [ALAC] ALS certification and decertification votes
Most votes would be open. Our rules allow someone to explain their vote if they wish (particularly a no or abstain). For those few votes where there is no recommendation from the RALO, the vote would be secret, BUT we would be able to privately request a rationale for the vote.
You are correct (in my view) that in an ideal world, the ALAC members, who have an obligation to support the ALAC, At-Large and ICANN, could vote against the wishes of some in their RALO, and could justify this. The same is true for personnel votes, and some parts of ICANN have those open as well.
But I am not sure ALAC members are paid enough to subject them to possible harassment if we can easily remedy it.
