Yesterday when I went to vote my 30 times for Dan Girardi on the NHL ballot, the message stating that I had reached the limit for votes allowed online which had flashed after voting 30 times on Monday was still there.
It hadn’t been 24 hours so I figured it hadn’t been reset yet.
However, throughout the day I had received tweets and e-mails from other fans trying to vote for Girardi stating the same thing. So I went back and checked the ballot and there it was…
Give your favorite players the chance to play in the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL® All-Star Game in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada by submitting a ballot.
(Up to 30 times on each platform: below, on web-enabled mobile devices, and via SMS text).
Up to 30 times on each platform. Not 30 times on each platform per day, just 30 times on each platform. So basically if you’ve done your 30 write-ins for Girardi on the on-line ballot and through text message you are done.
Well that’s not good.
How are we supposed to stuff the ballot? LOL
So now our job is going to be that much more difficult as instead of making sure we vote everyday, we have to make sure everyone we know votes their 60 times.
While how we get there has changed the goal remains the same. Get Girardi in the All Star game.
So I ask everyone at least once a day tweet, Facebook, e-mail or call every friend, co-worker and family member to remind them to vote.
You can vote for Girardi through the online ballot or texting Girardi to the shortcode 81812 (Message and data rates may apply).
