This hinges on the meaning of "possible"; clearly Billy Pilgrim is a
Player and it's possible for him to vote on an Open proposal at any

I'll charitably interpret the Question to be equivalent to "Are any
Proposals Open?" based on the Reasoning, and answer NO.  The Vote
Period for this nweek has not yet begun.  I hold that Rule 4E48
defines two separate Game Actions in its last two sentences, each
beginning with "As a Game Action", and that neither of these sentences
has any bearing on the effectiveness of the other.

Set the gamestate to what it would be if what I just said.
