Hi.  Just a quick note to remind organizations who want to vote to 
register using the below form.

There are 11 candidates:


Ballots have gone out to the currently 65 registered voters, 55 of which 
have voted.

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 secretary at peeringdb.com.  I can have 
the ballot re-emailed if 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

     a particular person, any entity that directly or indirectly controls,
