The ARIN Board of Trustees adopted Bylaws changes at its meeting on 14 
July 2015. The changes include:

  * Shortening the voting open period to “at least 7 days”, so Elections
    do not close on a weekend
  * Replacing the term “Designated Member Representative (DMR)” with the
    more self explanatory “Voting Contact”
  * Modifying the voter eligibility cutoff deadline from 60 days to 45
    days prior to the election
  * Clarified the requirement for ARIN to deliver notice of the election
    prior to the eligibility cutoff

These changes were adopted incorporating feedback received during the 
Community Consultation on Election Related Bylaws Changes from 20 April 
to 20 May 2015 and include Article V, Section 3.a, Article V, Section 
3.b, Article VIII, Section 2.b, Article VIII, Section 4.a, and Article 
VIII, Section 4.b.
