I have maintained membership in SCA, Incorporated, for about ten
years now, but I have not gotten off my behind for the last three
years, in that I seldom attend events and never attend baronial
or cantonese meetings.  Therefore, I would have to say that a
pay-to-vote policy would _not_ disenfranchise the less active
members of a group.

If you really want to restrict pollings to active members, I suggest
that you only solicit the pollings in places like the feast-hall
kitchen, and ask those doosers you poll not to tell their sedentary
friends about it.
