Our Bylaws clearly address this:

2.4 (10)
If a ballot is proposed to amend the same section of the Final Guidelines
or the
Final Maintenance Guidelines as one or more previous ballot(s) that has/have
not yet been finally approved, the newly proposed ballot must include
Bylaws of the CA/Browser Forum, v.2.2 (Effective May 21, 2019) 7
information about, and a link to, any such previous ballot(s), and may
provisions to avoid any conflicts relating to such previous ballots.
