I am in complete agreement with DeLong. When afrinic has e-vote
mechanism in place, completely the paper ballot is not necessary.
Stakeholders not able to attend afrinic meeting vote remotely e-voting
platform. Stakeholders present at afrinic meeting vote also online
using e-vote platform.

If there are stakeholders present at afrinic meeting without computer,
afrinic provide computer room where those people can make their e-vote

The issue of ballot/proxy is eliminated.

Win-Win situation for everyone.
