I think you can submit a ballot up until October 20th on the QC's and Spoiler. You can get the ballot and details on UMP's website.

There supposedly going to post the results in the 1st week of November, were waiting.

Judging by the responses on 4m, i believe its gonna pass. QC's and the other 2 changes.
