Well, we don't have an option to abstain, at least not on the ballot. 
"Abstention" was by not taking part in the vote, and who knows if 
that was intentional or not (none votes tend to be because people 
forgot or had some technical issue.)  In this case 3 people 

I agree with you about None Of the Above.  Next time I hope.

As for direction carrying to the second round, I am pretty sure this 
was discussed some months ago on an EURALO call, but don't remember 
the outcome (if any.)  I think when it was discussed we might have 
been anticipating a different voting method, anyway, expect someone 
with a better memory will have an answer.

I would like to know as I did not see the vote from the ALSes in time 
for it to influence how I voted.
