Vote Now in 2014 ARIN Elections

The polls are open in this year’s ARIN Board and Advisory Council elections.  If you’re a designated member representative (DMR), you are the person responsible for casting a vote on behalf of your organization.  Note than voter eligibility was set 60 days out from the start of the election, on 11 August 2014.   The election began on 9 October 2014 and will stay open through Sunday, 19 October at 3 PM EDT.

Voting in elections is the main responsibility and benefit of ARIN membership, so make sure you take advantage of this opportunity to shape ARIN leadership.  Each ARIN member organization may cast one vote, so all votes count equally, and your participation is encouraged.  Good voter turnout is a statistic we hope to hold up!
