Despite the workarounds previously provided, many of you have still been unable to properly express your enthusiasm for your favourite 2015 Music Express Awards nominees. Due to overwhelming response (yes, we actually do read all your
hate fan mail) about not being able to vote more than once for your selections, we’ve gone back to the drawing board and have come up with a solution to the voting woes for this year’s Music Express Awards.
Here’s what we’re going to do. Starting as soon as this post goes live, you can “Vote” for your chosen nominee in their category by tweeting about them. After the voting closes at 11:59pm (EST) on Feb 18th, we will have our staff of
trained monkeys skilled statisticians tally up all the twitter votes and -add- them to the votes visible via our online voting. Those totals will be used to determine the winners for this years Music Express Awards!
In order for the votes to be counted properly, the Tweets must include the following: The band/act you are voting for as a twitter handle (@thetrews for example), the link to the page for the category you are voting for them in (for example http://themusicexpress.ca/top-compilation-release-2015-music-express-awards/ for the Top Compilation), our twitter handle @MusicExpressCA (so that we can easily collect all the votes), and finally the hashtag #TMEA2015 (so that we can sort the votes easily from our regular twitter traffic).
I know, sounds complicated… but it’s actually really simple. Here’s a sample tweet voting for Dallas Green as Top Male Vocalist. Feel free to cut and paste and edit (unless you just want to vote for Dallas of course!) to register your vote.
Dallas Green – Top Male Vocalist – http://themusicexpress.ca/top-male-vocalist-2015-music-express-awards/ @cityandcolour @MusicExpressCA #TMEA2015
And that still leaves you with 40 characters to give shout-outs!
- Pro-Tip: On each of the voting pages you can click “Share on Twitter” and a window will pop up with the category and link already filled in – just edit to include the band you are voting for, @MusicExpressCA and #TMEA2015 and you are good to go!
So light up the twittersphere! Every single tweet (that has the right info in it!) counts as a vote – so tweet/vote as often as you like. You’ve got 13 days to determine the fates of our nominees – let the voting
