Dear All,

Please see below an important announcement from Cheryl Langdon-Orr, ALAC Chair, regarding the results from Round 1 of the vote for the Board Director selected by the At-Large community.


Date: Fri, 26 Nov 2010 13:13:07 +1100
Subject: ANNOUNCEMENT : Results from Round 1 voting for At-Large selected Board Member for seat #15 of ICANN Board
Voting for Round 1 voting for At-Large selected Board Member for seat #15 of ICANN Board, has now been completed and the poll has closed, the vote is quorate and the results show that a Round 2 vote is now required to be held.

The ABSdt processes (as approved) state that, should it be required, a Round 2 will be held:"26 - 28 November: Second round of online voting."  This announcement is to both release the results of Round 1 and to prepare the At-Large electorate to undertake their Round 2 vote.

The percentage table results from the Round 1 vote are shown below:

Names.                       Votes %
Sébastien Bachollet       43.75
Pierre Dandjinou            25.00*
Alan Greenberg             31.25

This shows that the candidate who will drop out with the lowest percentage support (number of votes), and not continue to round 2 vote is Pierre Dandjinou*.

I have now instructed staff to set up a Round 2 vote on Big Pulse  which will  start ASAP on 26 November and run through 28 November at 23:59 UTC.

The vote will be between Sebastien Bachollet and Alan Greenberg (listed in that order) . Voter options will be to select one (1) preferred candidate; All electorate members should expect to receive their voting credentials from staff and the usual announcements re the vote, within the next 12 hrs => If you do not receive your voting credential please contact staff directly. Note also that the previous  'in the event of a tie' arrangements will be in place -> good luck to both of the remaining candidates...

I have also requested staff to arrange for suitable wider publication of these results and the Round 2 vote beginning through the wider At-Large and ICANN announcements mechanisms as soon as possible.

Please also not I have taken the liberty of emailing the three candidates in the Round 1 vote and informing them of these results, whilst thanking all of them for their contribution and ongoing support of this important and landmark selection process, I'm sure I reflect the feelings of the community when I also specifically thank Pierre here in this message for his willingness to serve as the At-Large selected ICANN Board member, and for his active and professional participation in the campaigning processes; and that we look forward to his renewed and continuing involvement with At-Large and the ALAC's work within ICANN.

Finally as soon as possible after the Round 2 vote closes (and any tie is broken by the random method previously outlined) I will inform the community of the outcome and write to the ICANN Company Secretary Mr. John Jeffrey, informing him of the At-Large selected person for seat #15 of the ICANN Board of Directors, so that they may take their role on the Board as planned at the Cartagena meeting.
