Here is a version including the "after" keyword:

   (f) Vote Duration

       Any vote conducted by the PMC may be closed after 7 days following
       initiation providing that quorum has been met in accordance with
       Article 1 (b).  A vote not meeting quorum during the initial 7
       day period shall default to a 14 day duration.  On expiration of
       a 14 day vote duration, if quorum has not been achieved, the
       vote shall be consider as a failed vote.

I've already added this change to the CVS version.

Cheers, Steve.
