I mentioned it on the discuss list a few minutes ago. If Tyler can add 
it to the thank you page then it's a plus, but not a huge deal to me. No 
system is perfect, even a confirmation email could get lost, bounce, or 
end up in the spam folder. What we've got is already a huge improvement 
over email.

It would be a nice to have, but I don't see it as a requirement since 
we've got a confirmation page when we hit submit. (So to me it is clear 
that the process worked and was completed.)

Tyler also uses this to track member contact information and will insist 
(send reminders) to those who don't vote and provide their info... so if 
the process failed for anyone (very unlikely if they see the thank you 
page) then they'll get a reminder before the voting close.
