A second please for this motion.

Council members are from time to time disenfranchised from voting by the
current ICANN
Council requests the Board to adopt the following change to the bylaws
drafted by the ICANN
general council's office to permit absentee voting in certain specific

Add to:ICANN Bylaws ARTICLE X: Section 3. 8

c. Absentee voting.  Members that are absent from a meeting at the time
of a vote on whether
to initiate a PDP, forward a policy recommendation to the Board, or fill
a position open for
election may vote by absentee ballot.  The GNSO Secretariat will provide
reasonable means
for transmitting and authenticating absentee ballots, which could
include voting by
telephone, e-mail, or web-based interface. Absentee ballots must be
submitted within 72
hours after the start of the meeting in which a vote is initiated,
except that in
exceptional circumstances announced at the time of the vote the Chair
may reduce this time
to 24 hours or extend the time to 7 days.
