I confess ignorance to AfriNIC specifics here.  Where I am more familiar with the process, I am able to use a single NIC handle (OD19-ARIN) and a single arin-online login in order to cast votes for multiple organizations where I am the DMR. There are provisions in their e-vote system for me to vote some or all of the organizations at the same time as well as to vote each organization individually.

If AfriNIC requires a person to have a separate NIC handle for each ORG affiliation, then I guess that’s 1:1, but it seems like it would be a huge pain for people who work with multiple organizations.
