The company I work for is an ARIN member.  I personaly would like to see an
email sent to the lists before a vote is called with details of what the
vote is about.  I think this would be more usefull that having to check the
website for upcoming information.

today is an election day in my state, and so, the following caught my eye:

> I did not vote. Ergo. I abstained.
> All those like me also abstained.

i wish that you would vote, and that all others like you would vote.  not
just in today's election (if your state is having one), and in the next ARIN
election, but in all elections where you are eligible.

is there any way ARIN can augment or restructure the election process to
give you more information about the candidates and issues, and lower the
apparent bar to your informed participation?
