Electronic voting & proxy appointment now open for the AFRINIC Board and Governance Committee elections - 2018

Published On -

AFRINIC members and the community are hereby informed that electronic voting and appointment of proxies is now open for the AFRINIC Board and Governance Committee elections. Both services are accessible through the MyAFRINIC portal to AFRINIC members in good standing.

We strongly encourage members to use the electronic voting provision, but paper ballots will also be available (during the 2018 AGMM) to members who have not and do not intend to vote electronically.

The Candidate Slate for both elections is available at:

 

1) Electronic Voting

Only a registered  administrative contact of your organization can vote electronically. The admin-contact can also assign the voting right (through MyAFRINIC) to another registered contact.

To vote electronically, please follow the following steps:

  1. Log on to MyAFRINIC at https://my.afrinic.net/login;
  2. Navigate to the ‘Elections’ tab and click ‘Access Election Centre’;
  3. Select the election in which you wish to participate;
  4. Choose the option ‘Vote Online’.

To assign the online voting right to another registered contact of your organisation:

  1. Log on to MyAFRINIC at https://my.afrinic.net/login ;
  2. Navigate to ‘MY Account’ and ‘User Administration’;
  3. Check the ‘Voter Role’ to a corresponding listed contact.

 

2) Proxy Appointment

Please note that a member who has voted on-line cannot appoint a proxy. A proxy can be any individual. Please follow the steps below to appoint a proxy to vote for you in person at the AGMM:

  1. Log on to MyAFRINIC at https://my.afrinic.net/login;
  2. Navigate to ‘Elections’ and ‘Access Election Centre’;
  3. Select the election in which you wish to participate;
  4. Choose the option ‘Appoint Proxy’;
  5. Fill the proxy form;
  6. Print the form, sign it, send a soft copy to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and physically hand the original copy over to the person being appointed as your proxy.

Members who require a paper ballot and those carrying a proxy appointment instrument will obtain a paper ballot on-site, in Dakar, before the AGMM. The signed proxy appointment instrument must be submitted at least 24 hours prior to the election (1400h on 09th May 2018) either to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.or to the AFRINIC elections committee staff on-site, in Dakar.

Electronic voting will be closed immediately after casting of paper ballots has been completed, during the AGMM. Proxy appointment will close 24 hours before the AGMM (09th May 2018) to allow the elections committee do appropriate verification ahead of the AGMM.
