Hi Leah.

Just a note, to you and all other ALS representatives: These votes are held
by secret ballot. You need not broadcast your intentions unless you
explicitly wish to do so.

In addition to the "VOTE ANNOUNCEMENT" emails which go to the entire
mailing list, every ALS representative should by now have personally
received two separate emails with the subject "VOTE CREDENTIALS" -- one for
the Secretariat and one for the ALAC representative.

(Individual non-ALS members should have received similar but slightly
different ballots.)

Each of these "credentials" emails contains a link that is private to you,
that enables you to vote using a web service called "BigPulse". Upon voting
you will receive a coded receipt that can be used in case of challenge or

Results are tabulated automatically by BigPulse and relayed to ICANN staff
at the close of the election period.

ICANN staff could if they wanted extract information on who voted which
way, but that would only be required in case of a challenge and this has
not yet IIRC been required in the history of ALAC. What is more often done
is that ICANN staff typically query BigPulse halfway through a voting
period, in order to send reminders to those who have not yet voted.
