The election of the Network Security (LACSEC) Moderator will be conducted using LACNIC's electronic voting system. The system works as follows:
The system is configured with the nominated candidates, and the voters register ? which comprises all the e-mail accounts that are part of the list ? is loaded onto the system. A password is sent to each of these addresses so that they may access the system. During the voting period, users cast their vote and receive an e-mail containing a confirmation code and the name of the candidate they voted. This code may later be verified by each user.
