Dear Council Members,

The nominations for GNSO Council chair have closed. Philip Sheppard and 
Avri Doria have been nominated, seconded and accepted their nominations.

The ballots go out today,  Wednesday 16 May, and the voting period is 
open for 14 days, closing on Wednesday 30 May at 15:00 UTC.

Please note that the ballots come from tally[at]icann.org and can be 
responded to via the web at the URL or via email by replying to the 
message in plain text.
Please follow the instructions on the ballot to return the ballot as 
soon as possible. They should not be copied to any e-mail list.

The candidate receiving the majority of the votes will be elected as the 
chair. There will be a total of 27 votes cast and a majority is 14 or 
more. In case of a tie, there will be a second round of voting.

When the vote is completed, the Secretariat will announce the results on 
the Council mailing list.
The announcement will include:
a. The number of votes received by each candidate;
b. The names of the GNSO Council members from whom ballots were
received; and
c. The confidential code number of each ballot and the candidate for
whom it was voted.

This will allow each GNSO Council member to double-check that his
or her ballot was properly understood, but will not allow others to
determine how the member voted.

The GNSO Council will confirm the results of the voting at a
Council meeting

In exceptional cases where a GNSO Council member has no Internet
access during the voting period, a voice vote may be registered with the
GNSO Secretariat personally during the voting period, before the vote is

Please let me know, off the Council list, if you encounter any problems 
or do not receive a ballot.

Thank you
Kind regards,

Glen de Saint Géry
GNSO Secretariat - ICANN
