Solutions, in order of difficulty:

1. Visit http://wiki.jabber.org/index.php/Board_and_Council_Elections
and figure out how you want to vote before you talk with memberbot.

2. Ask me to remove your recorded vote, then vote again. (Or tell me
what votes you want to change and I'll modify the XML file that
memberbot created for your votes.)

3. Develop a general-purpose voting engine that really works, perhaps in
Python using Twisted Words. :-) As I've said many times, the memberbot
code is spaghetti code written by a glorified tech writer. It would be
good to replace it with generic voting code written by a real developer.
