How to vote in APNIC EC elections

If you are an eligible voter in the APNIC Executive Council (EC) election, there are two ways to cast your vote:

  • Online, using the MyAPNIC
  • On site, with a paper ballot

Vote online

Online voting is only available to APNIC Members.

By default, the APNIC Corporate Contacts are the only contacts who can vote. However, the Corporate Contact may assign the voting rights to other authorized contacts to vote on their behalf.

Online voting is only accessible via MyAPNIC. To vote online, you must login to MyAPNIC using two-factor authentication.

The voting section in MyAPNIC is only visible while the online voting is open. Online  voting in APNIC EC elections opens approximately two weeks and closes two days before the on-site election is held at the AGM. 

An online vote cannot be withdrawn after it has been submitted. APNIC takes no responsibility for online votes submitted by users who are no longer authorized by the APNIC Member organization.

For audit purposes, APNIC records the Member and user name of the submitted vote, the number of votes, the time, and the IP address of the voter. The specific choice exercised by the voter is NOT kept with the ballot record. 

For more information, please see APNIC online voting terms and conditions.

Vote on site

The Corporate Contacts and authorized contacts with voting rights may vote in person at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) by presenting valid identification to the APNIC Voting desk on the day of the election.

It is possible to appoint a proxy to exercise some or all of your organization's votes at an APNIC election. For more information, please see Assigning a proxy.
