If voting stops now, we've got 4 winners.
I'm staying up to see the count. Sunderland's always in first.

Does voting really finish at 11.04, or is that yesterday's time?

Is it an indicative, meaningful or meaningless vote?

You lot did this to me a few months back! I'm smarter this time round - I've already withdrawn my vote, so when it ends up in an inevitable 4-way tie, I simply cast my vote and break the tie. Nice try everyone! :-)

And yes, it ends at 11:04. The forum software is a bit rubbish in that it won't let me specify a time for a vote ending; only a date. If I want it to end at midnight, I have to set up the vote at midnight... so I go as close as I can, but don't worry too much about an hour or two either side.

Or go for a recount on 30th April? counting the number of versions posted of each tune (by different individuals)

Oh, bravo! Who voted for Dorset 4 Hand reel in the split second I had the poll open to change my vote? That's my brilliant strategy shot down! Strategy 2 - reopen the poll and close it manually in the morning. Night night all; I'll close the poll about 9am.

Are you going to call that "The People's Vote" Clive?

Can we have an enquiry into possible vote manipulation by the Dorset Liberation Front ?

I'll have you know that Dorset has recently been liberated from itself, regardless of whatever the people were voting for!!

I hope that, like our poor departed arbitrary very important council borders, that the other sections of this tune will not be so easily forgotten...

Oof. That's definitely not the outcome I was hoping for. Contemplating on skipping this month's tune...

...but a perfect opportunity for theme of the month, to play the one you did vote for.
