On April 15, 2007, the Green Party of the United States adopted proposal
272, creating a new formula for allocating delegates to different state parties.
 Proposal 272 also allowed state parties to cast fractional votes, in
 denominations of half a vote. This language is in Article II of proposal

 However, the current GPUS voting software is not capable of recording
fractional votes. Therefore, it is necessary to rescind that portion of Article II of proposal 272 until the software has been modified to support fractional votes.


In that section of the GPUS rules established by Proposal 272, Article II, the language "Delegate votes may also be split, in
denominations of half votes, in order to more accurately represent the opinions of each state's membership" shall be, and hereby is, rescinded.

This rescission shall be without prejudice against the introduction of future proposals brought for the purpose of revisiting this question of fractional voting.
