The Alphabet Challenge: “A” Stories Voting

Assuming everyone has read the stories, this is the place where you can vote for your favorite of the “A” Stories.

For readers who stumbled here or who need a refresher, the stories can be found by clicking on their respective names.




All readers have to do is read them and choose the one they liked best. At the end of one month from publication, I’ll tally the votes and declare a winner.

Edited to Add:  I’ve not see the totals change in the last few days despite people telling me they voted. Just in case, here’s how to vote.

Note that I added a couple of other options so the poll above looks different from my examples.

This is what the poll looks like. To ensure your vote counts, click on “View Results” before you cast your vote.

That will change the view to the current totals, including telling you how many votes have been cast (10 at the time of this writing).

Click on “Return To Poll” to exit that view.

To vote, you click on the circle next to the story you like. BUT . . . you also have to click on the “Vote” box for it to register.

Then, please click on “View Results” again to make sure your vote was added.

If your vote didn’t register, please let me know.

The system has a check for duplicate votes, so if you try voting again within a week of when you last voted, the vote won’t register.

If you tried voting in the last 3-4 days (from the date of this post), and you’re not sure if it counted your vote, try voting again. If the total changes, your previous vote likely hadn’t registered.

~ 0 ~ 0 ~ 0

Of course, if you would like to leave a comment for the writers — either here or with the individual posts — please do so.

The writers will appreciate hearing from you and will likely respond.

The next stories — the “B” Stories — should be up at the end of this month.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
