Voting Procedures

Voting Procedures Voting for candidates for election to the Board of Governors will open on Mon, Nov 16 at 12:00pm (VN Time) and close on Tue, Dec 8 at 6:30pm (VN Time). In 2008, the traditional “paper/fax voting system” was supplemented by a “Voting On Demand” secure on-line voting system. Two-thirds of the votes cast in 2008 were online votes; one-third were paper/fax votes; and voter participation was the highest ever, almost double the required quorum. The same two systems will be used in 2009. Ernst & Young has confirmed to receive both the paper/fax and secure online ballots, count the votes, and certify the election results.
