          1. a. Reza—we might use secret ballot just for appointments and I’m open to revision but I feel we shouldn’t have to hide our votes
          2. b. Melissa—I support this bill because students should know where we stand.
          3. c. Jessica—what is council morale? 
            1. i. Stipulate it so it’s not open to interpretation
          4. d. Jennifer—I agree with it.
          5. e. Ben—strawpoll where it is secret?
            1. i. This is to deny a secret ballot for any legislation
          6. f. Skyla—this is a motion for no secret ballot
          7. g. Dillon—It is adapted from Robert Rule’s and vote by ballot has no pressure and thus more accurate. I don’t recommend that council does this.
          8. h. Ben—the pressure of looking at other people’s vote and your vote isn’t influenced by surroundings
