Voting Rights

  1. Anyone can vote in the Anagrammy; regulars, occasional visitors, newbies and lurkers are all welcome.

  2. Voting is confidential and voters' choices will not be divulged by the Anagrammy Awardsmaster.

Voting Rules

  1. Voters may only vote once per month. If you vote more than once, the duplicate votes will be removed.

  2. A maximum of three votes is allowed in each category.
    1. Voters' 1st preference will be worth 3 points.
    2. Voters' 2nd preference will be worth 2 points.
    3. Voters' 3rd preference will be worth 1 point.


  3. Allowed voting combinations:
    1. 1st, 2nd, 3rd or
    2. 1st, 2nd or
    3. 1st or
    4. No votes in a category


  4. Voters must vote in at least 4 of the 6 shorter categories on the first voting page for their votes to be accepted.

  5. Voters may vote for their own anagrams.

  6. Nominees organising all their friends and family to vote for all their nominations would be considered poor form and, in blatant cases, their votes will not be accepted.


Voting Procedures

  1. Voting will be open for two days during the first week of each month (In February 2010, it was reduced from 3 days). Voting will occur mainly on weekdays and not on weekends.

  2. Votes can only be submitted using the form on the Vote Page.

  3. The Voting Page uses a Perl script, so that it works on all browsers. This script emails the votes to the Awardsmaster and automatically updates the Leader Board.

  4. There are three voting pages, one for the six shorter categories, a second for the two long ones and a third for the Rude Category.

  5. Before votes are submitted, they are presented to the voter for review. Voters may review and change their votes as often as they like before final submission.
