The Seventh Annual Cardinal Blogger Awards Ballot

by Cardinal70 on November 7, 2013

The first project the United Cardinal Bloggers ever did as a group was the Cardinal Blogger Awards.  While the specific awards have changed over the years, every November we come back to this project as a way of honoring both the season past and the bloggers that wrote about it.

While the bloggers will not be posting their selections for another couple of weeks, we are opening up the ballot to our loyal readers and Cardinal fans today.  The past couple of years, we’ve combined all of the reader submissions into one “fan ballot” that counts the equal to any of the ballots turned in by a UCB member.

The ballot is listed here so you can follow any links that you might need to make a decision.  The voting form is over here and ballots must be cast by noon on Friday, November 22.

Remember, the roundtables are still going on, so be sure to check them out as well!
