VOTING RULES: Each owner gets 10 VOTES. Split them up anyway you choose. Write in nominees are allowed. By writing them in you’re sort of nominating them! Only qualification is the nominee has to have died between 3/16/2016 and 3/15/2017. That’s right, still got a month for potential memorialites to enter their candidacy. My advice though would be to try and hang on until after 3/15. I believe, and gotta hope, 2018 will be less competitive. Oh man…busted copying and pasting the 2017 voting rules on the 2018 Nominee page! I could fix it by changing the dates, but I think I’m going to leave it in. It’s how great traditions get started. I also wanted to see if any memorialites took my advice and held on past 3/15/2017 and now I’m thinking it might not be the best advice. Chuck Berry passed away on 3/18/2017. I could have sworn he was one of last years nominees so I left him out this year! I’ll add him in, but maybe good advice for 2019 hopefuls would be to try and make it to June….just to be safe! Now, more stuff copied and pasted from 2017!
Voting rules note: If you assign more or less than 10 votes total your votes will be apportioned proportionately. EX; I give 500 votes to Sager, 2 to Prince and 1 to Miss Cleo. 500+1+2 = 503 and 10/503=0.0198807157057654, so Sager gets 500*0.0198807157057654 votes or 9.940357852882704…rounded to 9.94. Prince gets .04. MC gets .02! Could be the .02 that puts her over the top!!
