e-mail containing details of the election, voting instructions and information to be provided when casting the vote. LACNIC must have this individual's name and personalized e-mail address on record. The accuracy of this information is solely responsibility of the members. In no way LACNIC will be responsible for the accuracy or updating of this information.

Conditions to vote:
All organizations that are member of LACNIC by October 5th 2010 at 20:00 UTC are up to date with their membership dues, and do not have any preceding debt with LACNIC may vote in this election.

- Active A members are entitled to 1 to 5 votes, depending on the address space they administer:
- Level 1: administer IPv6 blocks of any size and/or IPv4 blocks equivalent to a /19 or smaller: 1 vote
- Level 2: administer IPv4 blocks greater than a /19 and smaller than a /16: 2 votes
- Level 3: administer IPv4 blocks equivalent or greater than a /16 and smaller than a /14: 3 votes
- Level 4: administer IPv4 blocks equivalent or greater than a /14 and smaller than a /11: 4 votes
- Level 5: administer IPv4 blocks equivalent or greater than a /11: 5 votes
- Active B members: 1 vote

The number of votes is not cumulative in case that the member falls into more than one category.
