Clarification of language in Bylaw amendment yet to be voted on

Our organization is in the process of amending a number of items in the our existing Bylaws. The suggested amendments have been sent to our membership for review and voting. Two specific amendments are confusing by their wording. Is it possible to clarify the wording after the amendments and the ballots have been mailed? The improved wording will not change the meaning or intent of the proposed changes.

Do your bylaws specifically authorize the use of mail in ballots? If they don't you can't use them (RONR p. 423). If the bylaws do authorize mail in voting then the members would be voting on the language that is in the ballot so if you all want to tweak the language you would need to send out new ballots (and you would need to follow all of the amendment provisions since you are proposing a new amendment).
