Only 3 weeks to go before we shut down the voting for the 2013 Burgie Awards. If you haven’t yet, VOTE HERE. For those of you interested in how things are looking, check it out below. These standing are accurate as of Midnight Sunday December 16th.
Voting for Burger Beast’s 4th Annual Burgie Awards starts now!
VOTING IS OVER
If you want to make sure your favorite wins then vote. I take the Burgie Awards very seriously and do not like “fake” votes so there is only 1 vote per IP address. If you try to circumvent the poll by cheating and voting multiple times from the same IP, I will disqualify all of those votes. It doesn’t pay to cheat.
Voting closes on Wednesday January 9th, 2013 and the winners will be announced live at the 4th Annual Burgie Awards on February 2nd, 2013.
Make sure to familiarize yourself with the Burgie Awards.
Don’t forget, nominations are already up for the 2013 Burgie Awards!
