Election System Instructions

The Voting Contact for each ARIN Member organization must have a valid ARIN Online account to be eligible to vote in ARIN Elections. Learn more on our Voting Contacts page. Voting Contacts can be updated until seven days before the election, so for 2023, the deadline is 3:00 PM ET on 12 October 2023.


Any individual, regardless of ARIN Membership status, may self-nominate for any open Board of Trustees, Advisory Council, or Number Resource Organization Number Council (NRO NC) position. However, nominees should be aware of the specific requirements and responsibilities for the position they are self-nominating for:

All candidates for ARIN Elections are advised of the Nomination and Appointment Conflict of Interest List.

All nominations must be received and accepted by ARIN’s published close of nominations deadline. Nominees must submit a completed nomination questionnaire in order to qualify for consideration.

Submit a Nomination

During the open nomination period, self-nomination(s) for the ARIN Board of Trustees and AC are accepted via an online form. Board Nominees with completed submissions will also be asked to digitally sign a release form for the independent, third-party background checks – the results of which will be taken into consideration in the classification of nominee qualifications, along with the questionnaire responses, and interviews.

The current Board and AC nominee questionnaires can be found on the ARIN website.

For the NRO Number Council (NRO NC), submissions of nominations and/or self-nominations are accepted via an online form as well. The nominee questionnaire for NRO NC nominees is also available.
