L. Rule 3018. ACCEPTANCE OR REJECTION OF A PLAN IN CHAPTER 11 REORGANIZATION CASES
Except as provided by this Rule or order of the Court, no ballots shall be filed with the Clerk of the Court. The notice which is required by FRBP 3017(d) shall direct that all ballots be submitted to the plan proponent at a specified mailing address.
(b) Ballot Summary
For all confirmation hearings the plan proponent must prepare a written ballot summary in substantially the same form as Appendix L-3018-b.

At the confirmation hearing the original ballot summary and one copy will be submitted to the Court for filing. The plan proponent shall make available upon request a copy of the ballot summary three (3) calendar days prior to the confirmation hearing to any party objecting to the confirmation of the plan and to the proponent of any competing plan and its counsel.
