Voting has begun on the PeeringDB initial Board election!

There are 11 candidates:


Voter registration emails have been sent out to the currently 247 pdb-gov list members.

Ballots have gone out to the currently 30 registered voters.

More voters are welcome!  The vote is open until end-of-day November 30th UTC, but factor in some time needed for me to process your registration.  
The sooner the better.  If you have not registered, please fill out the following voter registration form and send it to secretary at peeringdb.com.

If you have registered but not yet received your ballot, please check your junk/spam folder for a message from bigpulse.com and/or email secretary at peeringdb.com as needed.

If you are having trouble voting or have other questions/concerns, please feel free to email secretary at peeringdb.com.

Both Steve Feldman and myself get emails to secretary at peeringdb.com.

Thank you,
Chris Caputo
Interim Secretary
