 The 2011 People's Picks - The Final Ballot!


It's time for the 2011 People's Picks vote.  This process is pretty easy - for each of the categories, simply select your one choice.  Depending on the category, there may be only a few to choose from, or quite a few.  Remember, you only get one ballot for your email, so it's important that you include it. Don't worry - I don't use the email for anything other than ensuring a one vote/one email rule.

NOTE: It is no longer necessary to vote in every category. I've included an 'abstain' button for each category which is the default (and very last) radio button. However, I've also provided links for all choices to refresh your memory on each nominee. Read through all the choices in each category before casting your vote, since what I call something might not be what you expected. Thanks!

Let me know if you've got any questions by emailing me.  Thanks once again for your participation!
