All attendees are invited to vote. Here's how it works:
1. In order to vote, you must be an attendee of the conference.
2. Use color-coded index cards in your conference packet. Pink for Poetry,
Blue for Non Fiction and Yellow for Fiction.
3. Write down the number of the story that you wish to vote for each genre.
4. You can only vote once in each genre. Voting starts at 8:45 AM Saturday.
5. There is a box provided for the placement your ballots.
6. At 2:30 PM all voting will end and ballots will be tallied. The winners
of each genre will be announced after 3:30 PM.

[[NOTE: I think if you entered you can vote for
yourself...does that sound right? I think last year people "recused"
themselves when they could have voted. Also you can enter all 3 genres &
vote for yourself in all three genres.]]
