*Appendix 1: GNSO Council Voting Thresholds (ICANN Bylaws, Article X,
Section 3)*

9. Except as otherwise specified in these Bylaws, Annex A hereto, or the
GNSO Operating Procedures, the default threshold to pass a GNSO Council
motion or other voting action requires a simple majority vote of each
House. The voting thresholds described below shall apply to the following
GNSO actions:****

1. Create an Issues Report: requires an affirmative vote of more than 25%
vote of each House or majority of one House;
2. Initiate a Policy Development Process (“PDP”) Within Scope (as described
in Annex A): requires an affirmative vote of more than 33% of each House or
more than 66% of one House;
3. Initiate a PDP Not Within Scope: requires an affirmative vote of more
than 75% of one House and a majority of the other House (“GNSO
Supermajority”);
4. Approve a PDP Recommendation Without a GNSO Supermajority: requires an
affirmative vote of a majority of each House and further requires that one
GNSO Council member representative of at least 3 of the 4 Stakeholder
Groups supports the Recommendation;
5. Approve a PDP Recommendation With a GNSO Supermajority: requires an
affirmative vote of a GNSO Supermajority; and
6. Approve a PDP Recommendation Imposing New Obligations on Certain
Contracting Parties: where an ICANN contract provision specifies that “a
two-thirds vote of the council” demonstrates the presence of a consensus,
the GNSO Supermajority vote threshold will have to be met or exceeded with
respect to any contracting party affected by such contract provision.****

*Appendix 2: Absentee Voting Procedures (GNSO Operating Procedures

adjournment. 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
calendar days, provided such amendment is verbally confirmed by all
Vice-Chairs present.****

4.4.3 The GNSO Secretariat will administer, record, and tabulate absentee

style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">9. Except as 
otherwise specified in these Bylaws, Annex A hereto, or the GNSO Operating 
Procedures, the default threshold to pass a GNSO Council motion or other voting 
action requires a simple majority vote of each House. The voting thresholds 
described below shall apply to the following GNSO 
actions:<u></u><u></u></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:18.0pt"><span lang="EN" 
style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">1. Create an 
Issues Report: requires an affirmative vote of more than 25% vote of each House 
or majority of one House;<br>
2. Initiate a Policy Development Process (“PDP”) Within Scope (as described in 
Annex A): requires an affirmative vote of more than 33% of each House or more 
than 66% of one House;<br>3. Initiate a PDP Not Within Scope: requires an 
affirmative vote of more than 75% of one House and a majority of the other 
House (“GNSO Supermajority”);<br>
4. Approve a PDP Recommendation Without a GNSO Supermajority: requires an 
affirmative vote of a majority of each House and further requires that one GNSO 
Council member representative of at least 3 of the 4 Stakeholder Groups 
supports the Recommendation;<br>
5. Approve a PDP Recommendation With a GNSO Supermajority: requires an 
affirmative vote of a GNSO Supermajority; and<br>6. Approve a PDP 
Recommendation Imposing New Obligations on Certain Contracting Parties: where 
an ICANN contract provision specifies that “a two-thirds vote of the council” 
demonstrates the presence of a consensus, the GNSO Supermajority vote threshold 
will have to be met or exceeded with respect to any contracting party affected 
by such contract provision.<u></u><u></u></span></p>
