* Paul Andersen and Andrew Dul tied with 49 votes each. One of these candidates was to serve a 2-year term and the other was to serve a 1-year term on the Advisory Council. According to ARIN's Bylaws, Article VII, Section 5.a., "If two (2) or more nominees receive the same number of votes for vacancies for dissimilar terms the assignment of terms shall be determined by lot." In the presence of witnesses on November 4, 2003, ARIN President Ray Plzak drew Andrew Dul's name as the individual to serve the longer (2-year) term. Paul Andersen will therefore serve the shorter (1-year) term.
