The above ballot includes the CIRA CEO's blog (Public Domain), three CIRA directors' blogs (Michael Geist, Kevin McArthur, Kerry Brown), and a VoterMedia blog. If this were a funded blog competition these might not be included, but given the lack of funding and consequent lack of independent blogs, it's helpful to include these "non-independent" blogs.

This Votermedia ballot is not currently funded. It is displayed as a demo for if and when there is funding. Without funding there may be few votes, which makes the rankings less meaningful.
