Voting in the Sir Julius Vogel Awards closes at 8pm* Monday 31st May. If you haven’t already sent your vote in, now is the time. Do that last minute check to ensure you have voted in all the categories you want to (you don’t have to vote in all of them. Make sure you have filled in the identity fields on the form – ballots that don’t clearly have these verification fields will not be counted. And yes, they are checked.
Your ballot has to reach the organisers by the time above, so if you are posting your ballot, you probably should have sent it by now. It you get it in before the fist mail collection on Friday you might make it – but then again maybe not. Perhaps best to email.
*Well yes, obviously that is 8pm New Zealand Standard Time (UMT+12)
