Selection of ramdom selection methodology (preferably should be verifiable - Example: http://www.random.org/decimal-fractions/?mode=advanced where one candidate selections the "persistant identifier" for randomization and the other candidate selects N numbers to be generated where the Nth idetermines outcome.
|Initiation of first round vote||Tue||59|
Voting - all rounds
ICANN58 Copenhagen 11-16 March 2017
|Depending on number of candidates on slate, there may be up to three rounds of voting. For at least the last two rounds (and possibly 1st), a tie may be addressed by re-running poll or random selection. |
The detailed schedule should prbably not be determined until later in the process, but sufficient time needs to be allocated for worst-case situations.
If there are multiple rounds or repeats, the schedule should allow for time to consult RALO and hold a RALO vote if votes are directed, or take an informal poll if not directed but ALS input desired.
Note that for the last election, there were two rounds, 22-25 Nov and 26-28 Nov. Time was NOT allowed for consultation, although some RALOs tried to consult (to varying degrees of success). Short rounds did seem to work, and of course, IF held suring ICANN meeting, could be even shorter. But consultation with ALS perhaps more difficult.
