    Hi, thanks for all the work you do on this. I seem to remember that on the second round you can vote every day, can you explain how that works? I’ve not been able to do that But I’m not sure if I remember correctly. Thanks

    You can only vote in each category once. I decided not to allow daily voting as it seems to detract from the popularity contest, turning it into a contest of who can convince their readers to vote more often.

    when does voting end?
