Now for the international section
When voting closed at the appointed time yesterday the person with most votes in the newcomer category of the PB Poster of the Year was MrsB. It was a tightly fought contest with at different stages three contenders being in the lead. The final result was:-
MrsB 201 votes
Old_Labour 196 votes
Beverley_C 192 votes
Mick Pork 101 votes
Uniondivvie 39 votes
Congratulations to Mrs B and all who made the short-list.
The election took place under what is known as the “Approval voting system” – see article here. Under this those taking part can vote for as many candidates as they wish. The winner is the one to attract most votes.
Now we have the next section of the POTY ballot – for the top poster based outside the UK. The short-list has been drawn up by a committee consisting of Peter the Punter, Sunil and myself.
Voting closes at 6pm on Tuesday evening.
