    Board of Directors GNSO 1st Round Vote Should Be Done Now
    posted by michael on Friday June 16 2006, @08:49AM

    The GNSO is choosing someone for the remaining term of the open Board seat vacated by Michael Palage. Only members of the GNSO Council get to vote.

    According to the GNSO Elections procedures page, on June 15, 18:00 UTC, the GNSO Secretariat announces results of first-round ballot--on a secret mailing list.

    That was supposed to be 24 hours ago, and so far there has been no public word as to the results.

    Which means either it's going to a run-off between two candidates, or it's the usual routine of not telling the public. As the GNSO tends to run better than many other parts of the ICANN shop, I'm going to take a risk and bet it's run-off.

    Although exactly why we should be reduced to guessing ...

    Votes Revealed on ALAC List
    by michael (froomkin@lawUNSPAM.tm) on Friday June 16 2006, @10:08AM (#16825)
    User #4 Info | http://www.discourse.net/
    A reader points me to this link [icann.org] in which all is revealed:
    The results of the first round of voting for the ICANN Board seat # 14 are:
    Rita Rodin 12 votes
    Philip Sheppard 11 votes
    Michael Geist 4 votes

    21 Ballots received and a total of 27 votes cast.

    The second round of voting will proceed as set out in the Election procedure:
    http://gnso.icann.org/elections/election-procedure s-01jun06.htm [icann.org]

    Rita Rodin and Philip Sheppard will appear on the ballot in the second round.

    Michael Geist is eliminated because he received the lowest non-zero number of votes.

    The timelines are as follows for the second round of voting:

    June 15, 18:00 UTC - Second-round ballot distributed by secretariat June 21, 15:00 UTC - All ballots from second round must be returned to secretariat June 21, 18:00 UTC - Secretariat announces results of second-round ballot

    One candidate must receive a majority of the total number of votes (14) that all members of the GNSO may cast to be the winner.
