Voting Report

There were two resolutions to be voted on at the RIPE NCC General Meeting (GM) October 2019.

2,023 members registered to vote, and 1,749 members cast their ballots. Not all registered members cast their ballots on all resolutions to be voted on.

In all items, the abstentions were recorded but did not affect the vote count. The Options for Resolution 1 needed more than 50% "yes" votes to be approved. Resolution 2 needed more than two-thirds "yes" votes to be approved.

The vote count for the resolutions is 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.
