The ARIN member consultation on a proposed change to voter eligibility 
is now closed. We thank everyone who participated and shared their 
views. We were pleased to see a lively discussion and gather detailed 
feedback on this topic.

In response to the overwhelming opposition to the proposed change, ARIN 
will maintain its existing practice of the Designated Member 
Representative being the sole eligible voter for an organization. We 
will, however, add the  text below to our website to clarify the 
exception to the requirement that the voter-email domain must match the 
Organization or DBA name that ARIN has on file.

Exceptions: DMRs can be made eligible to vote even if they don't meet 
this criteria, if the organization's ADMIN POC provides a URL 
demonstrating the affiliation between the organization/DBA name and DMR 
email domain or writes to info at arin.net explaining that the DMR is a 
doing consulting work for the company.

We welcome further discussion on the requirements for DMR contacts and 
automation of their management at the upcoming ARIN 31 meeting in 
Bridgetown, Barbados on 21-24 April 2013.
