Klingon translation of the voting page

The Voting page is available in multiple languages(2). On 19 June, KLI director Lawrence M. Schoen asked for assistance to translate the voting page into Klingon. Alan Anderson provided a translation on 26 June 2015 on the Facebook group entitled "Klingon Language Institute".(3)
