Voting in an Election
On this page, click on 'Vote in this election' button. You will then be presented with a list of instructions on how to vote. For example, in an AFRINIC Board Members Election, there will also be a list of candidates from different regions. After 'selecting' the candidate you prefer from the first region, you will be taken to the rest. The process then continues until you have selected candidates you prefer to elect from all the regions.
Select an answer [you will be allowed to choose only one answer] and click "Next" to go the next question.
Select an answer [you will be allowed to choose only one answer] and click on "Proceed" to go to the next step where you will be given the chance to do any of the following:
- Edit your selections
- Confirm your selections and encrypt your ballot
If satisfied with your choices, you can encrypt the ballot by clicking on "Confirm Choices and Encrypt Ballot". It may take a while for this process to complete. Once the encryption process is finished you will be shown your unique "ballot tracker", which you can print, copy or email to yourself so that you could use it during the course of the election to track your vote.
If your vote has not been cast, you will be presented with two steps:
- Proceed to cast your ballot
- Verify that your vote was correctly encrypted (the package will decrypt your vote to reveal the selection that you made). If you choose to do this, your current vote will be nullified and you will be required to re-encrypt your vote.
Here is the link to show you the steps to verify that your vote was correctly encrypted.
Click on 'Proceed to Cast' and you are given the final chance to confirm that you want to cast your vote. If you are happy with your selection, confirm that you are voting for your organization by clicking on the confirm button. If you decide to cancel, then your vote will not be recorded and you can come back at any time to cast your ballot. However, you will be required to go through the entire voting process again.
The system will cast your vote (this may take a few moments to complete). You are then presented with a confirmation page.
You are now done and can return to the 'Election' home page from where you can ALWAYS monitor the election process and progress.
