    I see that the number of daily votes for both the Vancouver Chronic Diseases Clinic and Kennebec Manor has risen. I wonder if the attempt to get some exchange votes has had some success. Unfortunately we are both still in 14th place. Onward and upward!

    Anyone can work out how far behind? The leaderboard seems really random, showing wrong rankings and numbers of votes right now.

    I asked this last week and Tuha said it's a technical problem on their site that leads to that inconsistency. I think she clicks through to every single contestant page to get her accurate figures. She only does that at the same time each day. I'd go by her rankings!

    Sorry - it was the 'a' on the end of your name that made me leap to a false conclusion! :eek:

    I assume you could do it by placing your mouse over “Explore ideas” at the upper left of the page where you vote for Vancouver Chronic Diseases Clinic, then clicking on "Semi-Finalists". If you want to vote for Kennebec Manor, paste in: https://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf13407

    I agree - not over till it's over - groups can get disqualified if they're found to have had dodgy voters so we could still leapfrog ahead.

    Keep voting!

    I know it is too late now, but I would guess that you had used all of your votes. I think mine said 0/15 votes.

    Voting is over so they have taken down all the votes from the site. Every project shows 0 votes. We won't know the final tally which is rather unfortunate. We will know in a few days who the finalists are.

    Thanks to everyone who voted! :)
