Here’s a few things that have come up so far this year:
1. Please breakdown how you figured out how many votes you have. Something like “12 issues + 1 Awards ish + 1 Index + 4 for two Lion’s Den letters + 3 for one essay + 2 for Cross Plains coverage = 23 votes total.”
2. Use the template provided in this post to make sure you voted for everything. Several people have missed categories by accident already.
3. For essays, you vote THREE times. Once for First Place, once for Second Place, and once for Third Place.
4. By request, I’ve added a “No Award This Year” option to the top of the ballot page. This is for when you decide that none of the candidates are qualified, and you’d prefer that no one receive the Award in question. I find it hard to believe that any category will even be so barren of talent as to require this, but what the heck.
