Registration for Electronic Voting

Dear Colleagues,

At the RIPE NCC General Meeting (GM) October 2009 in Lisbon, the RIPE NCC Articles of Association were amended, and approved, to allow for electronic voting for the RIPE NCC Executive Board elections.

At the upcoming GM in Prague, Czech Republic on 5 May 2010, the RIPE NCC Executive Board elections will, for the first time, allow remote attendees to vote electronically in the elections for the Executive Board seats. Those attending the GM on site can vote using the traditional paper ballot method.

The RIPE NCC has engaged BigPulse, a third party that specialises in web-based voting solutions, to conduct the poll.

Today, 6 April 2010, you will receive an email from the RIPE NCC inviting you to register for electronic voting with the BigPulse system. You should follow the instructions in the invitation email if you wish to register for electronic voting.

The deadline to register for electronic voting is 21 April 2010.

The voting procedure, for those voting on site and for those voting electronically, is outlined in the following document:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are available on the electronic voting procedure to answer questions that you might have on electronic voting:

We have also created a demonstration video that guides you through the steps that you need to follow in order to register for electronic voting:

If you have any questions on the electronic voting procedure, please email .
