Voting Report

You’re viewing an archived page. It is no longer being updated.

There were ten items to be voted on at the RIPE NCC General Meeting (GM) May 2018 - nine resolutions and the RIPE NCC Executive Board election.

1,626 members registered to vote, and 1,392 members cast their ballots. Not all 1,392 members cast their ballots on all items to be voted on.

A resolution needed a majority of Yes votes or No votes to be either approved or rejected.

In the election, there were two seats to be filled. 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 both seats, with the candidate who won the first seat excluded for the second seat.

The vote count for the resolutions and the election are recorded below.

The original report from BigPulse is also available.

Verifying your vote

All those who voted electronically could choose to receive an email 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.
