Interim Results

These interim results will be subject to audit by the Electoral Commission and potential claims regarding the online voting process:

  • Audit by the Electoral Commission: 20, 21 and 24 October until 18:00 UTC
  • Submission of potential claims regarding the online voting process: 25 and 26 October until 18:00 UTC
  • Publishing of official results if no claims are received regarding the voting process: 26 October starting at 18:00 UTC

These interim results are published to avoid the disclosure of unofficial results through channels external to LACNIC before votes have been audited.

According to the provisions of the LACNIC Bylaws and the calendar of this electoral process, elections were held from 13 to 20 October 2022 to select candidates who will fill two seats on the LACNIC Board of Directors. Voting was conducted online. The voting period is now closed and the elected candidates are:

Wardner Maia:


Javier Alberto Salazar Castañeda:


According to the LACNIC's Bylaws (and the Regulations regarding Incompatibilities, Capacities and Suitability):

“Not more than two Directors may be citizens of the same country or territory in the region.”

For this reason, candidate André Ricardo Tomio, who originally received the second highest number of votes, was not elected, as he has the same citizenship as candidate Wardner Maia and current Board member Evandro Antonio Ramos Terra Varonil de Sousa.
