    Nominet is now seeking nominations for a member-elected non-executive director. The successful candidate would serve a three-year term.

    Members of Nominet may propose individuals to stand for election. The person standing does not need to be a member of Nominet, but only members can propose, second and vote.

    Nominations will be accepted until noon on the 7th June 2019 (BST).

    More information, including a candidate pack detailing how to apply or propose a candidate, is available here.

    Don't know that I have time to stand again this year, maybe 1 day we'll get an independent on the board!

    While I think someone from Acorn should stand again this year...The problem is it’s a one seat year.

    Therefore if you consider @monaghan got 223,698 last year with two seats:

    You are going to need double that this year...

    To win in a one seat year you need to do as well as Kelly 530,175 (2017) or Volker 955,849 (2016):


    2018 (two seats)
    Quota (to win): 540,180
    Cap (3% member vote): 48,616

    And an encumbant with the backing of lots of large registrars/registries.
    Not impossible to "unseat" but would mean it needing to be a 2/3 horse race.

    I'm not standing this year, but expect to next year.

    Apologies for the newbie question, but who has the votes?
    I see reference to bye-laws but cant see how the votes are calculated.
