Parish Notice – Votes Required
It’s that time of the year again.
Not that there is any vanity about Zelo Street (stuff that), but if so many other blogs are taking part, then there’s no reason to play Billy No Mates and stand on the sidelines.
So what’s the event? It’s the Total Politics 2010 Blog Poll, sponsored, in even handed style jointly by LabourList, LibDemVoice, and TP head man Iain Dale (he’s a Tory ... you didn’t know that? Go and stand at the back).
Here’s the rules (taken from Iain’s blog post):
1. You must vote for your ten favourite blogs and ranks them from 1 (your favourite) to 10 (your tenth favourite).
2. Your votes must be ranked from 1 to 10. Any votes which do not have rankings will not be counted.
3. You MUST include at least FIVE blogs in your list, but please list ten if you can. If you include fewer than five, your vote will not count.
4. Email your vote to firstname.lastname@example.org
5. Only vote once.
6. Only blogs based in the UK, run by UK residents or based on UK politics are eligible. No blog will be excluded from voting.
7. Anonymous votes left in the comments will not count. You must give a name
8. All votes must be received by midnight on 31 July 2010. Any votes received after that date will not count.
Note that new for this year is that you only have to vote for five blogs – last year it was ten or nothing, which may have put some potential voters off.
Of course, I’d love folks to vote for Zelo Street, but as Our Graham used to say, the decision is yours.
