Yes, some people do want Associate Members to be allowed to vote, possibly after a time delay.  However, my sense of the overall discussion is that most people think that (a) Associate members should not vote, and (b) the Bylaws already say that they cannot vote, elthough the wording may be confusing.

In this round, I want to propose changes that both improve AFRINIC’s accountability, and have a high probablility of passing the 75% majority vote, so I am proposing to clarify the wording around what most people already think is the case that Associate Members cannot vote.
