There were six items to be voted on at the RIPE NCC General Meeting (GM) May 2014 - five resolutions and the RIPE NCC Executive Board election. 1,140 members registered to vote, and 608 members cast their ballots. Not all 608 members cast their ballots on all items to be voted on.
In all items, the abstentions were recorded but did not affect the vote count. A resolution needed a majority of Yes votes or No votes to be either approved or rejected. In the election, a candidate needed more than 50% to be elected to the board. If no candidate received more than 50%, the candidate with the fewest first preference votes was eliminated from the count and their next preference votes transferred to the other candidates. This process was repeated until one of the candidates had more than 50% of the votes. The same system applied for all three seats, with the candidates who already won seats excluded for the second and third seats.
The vote count for the resolutions and the election are recorded below.

Verifying your vote
All those who voted electronically were emailed a receipt that allows them to verify that their vote was recorded correctly. To verify your vote, you will need to use your browser's search engine to find your receipt. There are fewer voting receipts than total votes because some voters represented more than one member and carried the voting rights for these members.
The RIPE NCC and its Executive Board would like to thank all those who participated in the voting process. If you have questions about the process, please contact the GM organisers.
