Dear colleagues, At the upcoming RIPE NCC General Meeting (GM) in Vienna on 2 November 2011, electronic voting on the GM resolutions will be facilitated. Those attending the GM on site can vote either electronically or by using the traditional paper ballot method. The agenda, including the resolutions to be voted on, will be published online on 5 October. The voting period will begin after the resolutions are presented to the membership on 2 November and will remain open until 3 November at 14:00 (UTC +1). The extended voting period will give members in all time zones in the RIPE NCC service region adequate time to cast their votes. The RIPE NCC uses BigPulse, a third party that specialises in web-based voting solutions, to conduct the poll. Tomorrow, 29 September 2011, 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 19 October 2011. Those attending the GM who wish to vote electronically must also register by 19 October. NOTE: It will not be possible to register to vote electronically on the day of the GM. If you think you are entitled to vote but do not receive the invitation to register by 18:00 (UTC) on 29 September, please contact <agm at ripe.net> to let us know.
