This is a test implementation of voter-funded media on Vancouver municipal issues, with emphasis on the November 2008 election. Unlike the competitions we've sponsored at UBC, this project is independent of the city government.

Please vote occasionally, up to once a week. We usually tally votes and update rankings on Monday afternoon/evening. Awards total $300/week.

Design of the voting system has been evolving through time -- see past updates and the VoterMedia blog, where you can comment and suggest new blogs to add.

We hope the city of Vancouver will one day fund a competition like this, with a secure login for each voter.
