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

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.
