AFRINIC members and the community are hereby informed that electronic voting is now open for the AFRINIC Board and Governance Committee elections. Both services are accessible through the MyAFRINIC portal to AFRINIC members in good standing.
Members will be able to vote and use the electronic voting provision via the MyAFRINIC portal.
The Candidate Slate for both elections is available at:
Governance Committee: https://www.afrinic.net/participate/election-process/govcom-candidates-slate-2021
Only a registered administrative contact of your organization can vote electronically. The admin-contact can also assign the voting right (through MyAFRINIC) to another registered contact.
How to vote

Members can cast their votes through their ‘registered contact’ (also known as ‘Administrative Contact’) or by proxy.
