Voting for the 2016 ARIN Elections is Now Open

Posted: Thursday, 20 October 2016

The polls are now open for the 2016 ARIN Elections to fill two seats on the ARIN Board of Trustees, six seats on the ARIN Advisory Council, and one seat on the Number Resource Organization Number Council (NRO NC). 

Eligible Voting Contacts from General Members in Good Standing may vote now through 3:00 PM EDT, 28 October. To vote, simply log in to ARIN Online and look for the "Vote Now" message on your dashboard.

As previously announced, ARIN is improving the security of its voting system and will no longer use email web links for casting ballots. This year, all eligible voters must log in to ARIN Online to access their organization's ballot.

To view candidate biographies, please view the ARIN Elections 2016 Voter Guide at:

To view or make Statements of Support, please visit:  

Anyone, regardless of voter status, is eligible to submit a Statement of Support for a candidate. Voting contacts should be aware that an ARIN representative will be personally calling them during the week of 24 October as a gentle reminder to vote and to answer any election-related questions they may have.

Participation in the election process is crucial, requires only minutes of a voter's time, and is an important responsibility. It's the one member-only benefit that gives organizations the power to shape the future of ARIN, our community, and the Internet with one simple ballot!

For questions about voting, or if you encounter an issue with the election system, you may either contact a member of the Member Services team at or ask a question via ARIN Online and direct it to Meetings/Elections.
