Voting Contacts

Note: Reminder: ARIN's election system is integrated with ARIN Online. Voting Contacts are no longer recorded as Points of Contact (POCs) in the ARIN database. A Voting Contact must have a valid ARIN Online account for a member organization to be eligible to vote in ARIN Elections. An ARIN Member organization must also be a General Member in Good Standing 45 days before a ballot or election to be eligible to participate. The deadline to establish voter eligibility for Voting Contacts is Sunday, 20 August 2017.

Each ARIN Member organization must designate one Voting Contact to vote in ARIN Elections, held each October. Organizations are encouraged to verify their Voting Contacts by logging in to their ARIN Online account or by emailing members@arin.net.

Voting Contacts:

  • Must have a valid ARIN Online account
  • Must be designated and up-to-date by the voter eligibility deadline (20 August 2017)
  • Are not identified in Whois
  • Can be designated/modified by either an Admin POC or Tech POC of an organization. However, ARIN will recognize an Admin POC as the final authority when needed.

If you have any questions regarding Voting Contacts, contact us at members@arin.net.
