Before voting, please take the time to familiarize yourself with the products and judges. Clicking on a product's title will take you to its publisher's websites, allowing you to learn more about that product.
For most categories, you have five choices (with the the exceptions being 10 each for Fans' Choice for Best Publisher and Product of the Year). When you vote for products or judges, rank them by selecting 1 for your first choice, 2 for your second choice, and so on. You do not have to, and are not expected to, place votes in every category!
If you don't like a product, don't vote for it. You cannot hurt a product's chances of winning by ranking it poorly. To the contrary, you'll help it out if the race goes down to the wire. This system is called an Instant Runoff Election
For our Judges, we use a Single Transferrable Vote Election.
In the end, we at the ENnies subscribe to the democratic principle of "one person, one vote." We ask that you not vote more than once (this includes voting on different devices (computers, smartphones, etc.)) and that you not ask others to do the same in order to "stuff the ballot box." As such, you will not be able to change your vote once you've submitted your selection.
