Following recommendations from the 2015 Election sub-committee, the Nominet Board agreed the process for Non-Executive Director elections and published a framework in advance to help ensure clarity for both members and potential candidates.

In advance of our Annual General Meeting, the register of members was closed and the voting rights calculated on 19th June 2018 under the voting rights policy.
Please note that the cap on the voting power of larger members is only applied once all votes are cast. Because we cannot tell in advance who will vote this list only shows uncapped vote allocations, not actual voting power on the day.
If you are aware of any members on this list who should be linked but appear not to be, please let us know via [email protected].
The June 2018 voting rights are available to download as a pdf file.

The Elections Convener will acknowledge your complaint as soon as they receive it, and try to respond to it within 5 working days. If this isn’t possible, they’ll let you know within this time when you can expect a response.
The Elections Convener will review the information you provided to decide how to respond – and whether there’s a need to involve ERS (our independent scrutineer), or colleagues from other parts of the company, to investigate it. We’ll keep your complaint on file, as this helps us monitor the number and types of complaints we receive.
