Help us get on the ballot

ICANN's rules make it nearly impossible for independent candidates to get on the ballot. We need over 400 registered ICANN members to express their support. If you are a registered ICANN member in North America, click here to endorse Eric Lee's candidacy.

Click here to track our progress A clever bit of programming on the icannot website allows you to see in real time how the endorsements are going. Right now, we're in 4th place out of 54 candidates, but only if there's a 50% voter turnout do we stand a chance of getting a labour candidate on the ballot for the October election.

Who is Eric Lee?

Click here to visit our new page about the candidate including comments from trade unionists around the globe.


"As organized labour is one of the biggest non governmental organizations (NGOs) in the world, it would be only natural if it had its representatives on the ICANN Board."

"It needs to be emphasized that the internet use among trade unionists and their organzations is growing very fast. It is used for the defence of human and trade union rights, education, development of collective bargaining, promotion of occupational safety and health, protection of environment, advancement of women, abolition of child labour and many other causes and purposes. Therefore it is important that the trade union movement through its representative(s) has a say in how the Internet is run."

"The International Federation of Building and Wood Workers, IFBWW, representing 11 million members in 281 trade unions in 124 countries with HQ in Geneva, Switzerland, would like to endorse the candidature of Mr Eric Lee for the ICANN Board."

"He would represent the internationally and globally organized labour . . . a committed labour activist with a great knowledge of the Information Technology - one of the true pioneers of the IT solutions for the organized labour."

-- Piotr Zeydler, Information Officer
