Voting can be accomplished at a committee meeting, during a conference call, or electronically via e-mail. Only CLSI delegates and alternates, and participants designed as members on document development committees, expert panels, and subcommittees are eligible to vote on a Proposed Draft document. The Consensus Council votes on the Final Draft document to ensure that the process was upheld. All other committee participants are encouraged to provide comments. In addition, CLSI welcomes comments from the public (see below for details).
