LAMMY AwardThe submissions have been done, the nominees chosen, and the time has finally come to vote for your LAMMY winners!

The Final Ballot is now open, and will remain open through Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 11:59 pm Pacific Time (US).

Before you begin, it is recommended that you do the following things:

  1. Check out the Full List Of Nominees, and visit as many sites as your schedule allows.

  2. Make a list of your winning selections for each category BEFORE you begin the poll, as you will not be able to stop and start once you’ve begun marking your ballot.

  3. Have your own Lamb Number, Website Name and Email ready, as you will be required to enter these on the ballot. (You can find your LAMB Number on the LAMB TABLE.)

A brief reminder of how voting works in this final stage of the process:

  1. Voting will occur through Survey Monkey, an online system which uses multiple choice answers, with nominated blogs appearing in randomized order for each voter so that no one gets an unfair advantage from being first on the list.

  2. Voting is open to current LAMBs only (#1-1550). One ballot per site; if your site has multiple contributors, you need to consolidate and submit as one ballot. Each ballot will require that you enter your site name, LAMB number and email to demonstrate that you are an eligible voter.

  3. You may vote for one (1) candidate in each category.

  4. You are allowed to vote for your own site.

  5. You may abstain in any category that you wish without hurting your votes in other categories.

  6. Those who did not participate in the Submissions or Nominations Stage are still eligible to vote in this final stage. We are hoping for record voter turnout.

  7. In the event of a tie for the win in any category, the moderators will contact all members who voted for one of the other nominees, and allow them to cast a run-off vote for the winner.

  8. In the event of a tie for the runner-up in any category, both members will be awarded the runner-up prize.

The final ballot will remain open through Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 11:59 pm Pacific Time (US).

The LAMMY Winners will be announced through video presentations on the LAMB website from May 6 to May 15, with a final press release published on May 16.

Have fun!
