It’s that time of the year again: the Total Politics blog poll is upon us.
As ever, I would love anyone who looks in on Zelo Street to cast a vote for this blog. As to what other blogs might be worth a vote, I will refrain from commenting: the rules of the poll forbid posting a list of preferred blogs, and so none will be mentioned in this post.
Here are the rules, which are apparently simple (taken from the Total Politics site):
Your votes must be ranked from 1 to 10. The higher you rank a blog or author, the higher up they will appear in the aggregated results. You must enter a minimum of five names for your vote to count. If you don't want to enter more than five, just write 'blank' in the remaining boxes. Every box must have some text in for the vote to be submitted successfully.
Only submit your vote once. If you vote more than once, it won’t be counted.
Only blogs based in the UK, run by UK residents and based on UK politics are eligible.
Anonymous votes left in the comments on the Total Politics website or emailed to members of staff will not count. You must submit your vote via the survey and you must enter a valid email address when you do so.
Do not publish a list of ten blogs on your site and try to persuade readers to vote for them. Any duplicate voting of this nature will be disallowed.
You can vote by clicking HERE. Alternatively, the Total Politics logo on the sidebar clicks through to the survey page. If you need further information, email HERE. And, as to “categories”, Zelo Street is officially “Non-aligned”.
[UPDATE: any selections where you put "blank" will require a category - just one - selecting. It's a bit of a pain, but that's how the form works]
