.VOTE domains are available globally to those in the political sphere and participating in the democratic process, provided they are willing to abide by registry policies.

The new .VOTE and .VOTO top-level domains are designed to provide a positive and respectable environment for voter interaction. Candidates and other political participants can register their memorable name while voters will know that the names reflect the philosophy of enhancing the democratic process.

Although the domain is unrestricted, registrants must abide by registration policies which require, among other things, that there be an obvious connection between name and the registrant’s activities in the election process, and that no deceptive or disparaging names will be registered.
