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.

We welcome comments, corrections, questions, suggested blogs to add etc -- please email admin[at]votermedia.org.
