                                    Tally is a simple vote tally to keep the current score of votes. Votes that go against the proposal aren't counted since it's equivalent to not voting.

                                    type Vote

                                    type Vote struct {

                                    	Address   common.Address `json:"address"`   // Account being voted on to change its authorization
                                    	Authorize bool           `json:"authorize"` // Whether to authorize or deauthorize the voted account

                                      Vote represents a single vote that an authorized validator made to modify the list of authorizations.
