> Dear colleagues,
> We are sorry to announce that the e-voting system will NOT be used for the
> upcoming Board election.
> Following consultations and discussions among the Board, the NomCom and
> staff, it was felt that the online voting mechanism should be further interrogated
> by the community before it is deployed.
> Although a lot of time and effort has already gone into AFRINIC’s endeavour
> to integrate the e-voting system into MyAfriNIC, there is need to subject it
> further tests to ensure it is well understood, sufficiently transparent and secure
> to be used in all confidence. The system is ready and will be released in few
> days for a wide-scale test.
> This postponement will give us more time to conduct a wide-scale test and to
> further engage the community in this change.
> We take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause,
> but be rest assured that we are committed to making the proposed system well
> understood, sufficiently transparent and secure to be used in all confidence.
> If you are not planning to come to Serekunda, you can still appoint a proxy as
> per the election guideline. The form will be available from MyAfriNIC but can
> also be directly downloaded from:
> Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
> Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need any further clarification.
