AFRINIC denies services(including voting for elections) to members who are not in good standing.  In the case of voting, the organisation will not be able to vote either online or on-site unless the outstanding balance has been cleared.

Login to the MyAFRINIC portal, and a message should appear on the screen if your organisation is not in good standing. To be sure, you can also view your statement of account and check whether there is an unpaid balance.

If there is an unpaid balance, check whether it’s from an invoice that is overdue (in which case the member is not in good standing), or an invoice that has not yet reached its due date (in which case the member is still in good standing, until the due date arrives).
