I wish to make it clear that I can see where the poll votes are coming from...I have been asked if 'stranger' solicitation is allowed, and frankly it's preferred...strangers will be more impartial...regardless of whether they are asked to vote for a particular nominee or not. I can't control how people vote and nothing any of the nominees has done is in violation of the poll. I did not anticipate how creative some nominees would get and may add some specific rules the next time I suppose.
Thanks for your understanding
