How the voting was done this year

Zoom has a built in polling feature which has advantages and disadvantages for voting. The advantages are that the votes are all recorded automatically with no possibility for error. The downside is that we cannot enforce one of the rules that we have at the in-person event: voters must pay attention and vote for all entries in a category 🙂

With Zoom, someone could vote for the first song, not pay attention to the 2nd song (and miss the vote), vote for the 3rd song and so on. Incomplete categories are not counted at the in-person event. With Zoom, we havo no way of knowing since votes are per entry and not per voter. That said, the number of voters per poll (there was one poll per entry) was consistent to within a range of about ~2-5.
