Deadline Approaching — Make Sure Your Organization is Eligible to Vote in ARIN’s Upcoming Election!

Posted: Friday, 25 August 2023

We hope you are excited to participate in ARIN Elections this October. Please note that a key deadline for the ARIN Elections process is coming up. All organizations who wish to vote in this year’s election must be a General Member in Good Standing as of 5:00 PM ET on Monday, 4 September 2023.

A General Member in Good Standing is an entity current on all annual fees and having a valid Voting Contact on record. Only General Members in Good Standing are eligible to vote in ARIN Elections.

If you are not sure what type of member your organization is, you may check its status in your ARIN Online account. If your organization is eligible to request General Membership, you can access the General Member request form through the ACTIONS drop down menu.

If you are already a General Member, please ensure your account has no overdue invoices on file and that you have designated a Voting Contact in your account before 5:00 PM ET on 4 September.

Important! Organizations may update their Voting Contact after the Voting Eligibility deadline but all changes must be finalized at least seven days before the voting period begins. Please refer to the Election Calendar for the exact date and time.

To learn more about how to designate, modify, or view your current Voting Contact, please visit our website.

Don’t forget — General Members may also participate on ARIN’s General Member Mailing List. Subscription to the list is limited to General Members only, as well as Trustees and key ARIN staff, and it is intended for discussion of topics related to the governance of ARIN as well as ARIN Elections. All candidates for the Board and AC will be offered the ability to subscribe to the General Members Mailing List to answer questions from the voting community.
