I'm not voting.
I have very little in my stash which fits any of these subjects.
However, I'll buy in something for whatever wins

We still have 2 more vote than declares; 6 votes to 4 declares
I trust those 2 extras are not bogey bandits

Ah, the Abraham question
The usual minimum is 4 but I can't find that rule right now

What I can find is mention of 3
Group Build Leaders
...
3. If subject is popular (i.e. three or more wish to take part), the Group Build Leader carries out a second poll of members to determine the start date of the GB. This is also done in liaison with the Group Build Guru for that subject.
On this page; viewtopic.php?f=92&t=22767

Voting is now over
Light Aircraft won with 5 votes
BOAC got 4 votes
None of the other options got any votes.

Now we move onto the choice of date poll
In the subject suggestion thread I suggested these dates;
Start dates I'm thinking of are the last Saturday of September or any of the first two Saturdays in October - 30/9, 7/10 or 14/10, With these dates the GB would end early/mid December
viewtopic.php?f=118&t=50704&p=785099#p785099

30th September to 1st December
7th October to 6th December
14th October to 13th December

I'll post a link to the date poll when its set up.
You'll need to join the GB usergroup to vote
