THE VOTE COUNT BEGINS!

Following the huge success of the first Great Big Thank You Awards we are again shining the spotlight on the people who go the extra mile and step up when they are needed – the people who make a positive difference to where you live and work.

We asked you to tell us about them and you did. And since October 19 you have been collecting special vote tokens printed in the Express & Star. The final tokens were printed on Saturday, November 18 and the deadline to send in the vote tokens was Wednesday, November 29.

The project team are busy counting and verifying the tokens and the finalists who receive the most votes will be announced as the winners at a special awards ceremony on January 18 at WV1 Suite, Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton.


The finalists who receive the most votes will be announced as the winners at a special awards ceremony on January 18.

Terms and conditions:

Online voting: The online voting period is from 9am Thursday, October 19 until 12 noon on Tuesday, October 24, 2017. Individuals may vote online up to a maximum of 25 times. It is possible to vote for more than one finalist but only one finalist per category. All votes will be subject to scrutiny and multiple online votes, from the same person or IP address, exceeding 25, will be declared void.


Printed vote tokens: The closing date for receipt of in-paper vote tokens is Wednesday, November 29, 2017. Tokens must be accompanied with a fully completed Voting Tokens Return Form. Photocopied or defaced tokens will not be counted. Tokens must be cut around the dotted lines. If posting, the correct postage must be put on the envelope. Entries with incorrect/insufficient postage will not be accepted nor will they be collected from Royal Mail and the entry will therefore be void. No responsibility will be accepted for any submissions which are lost, damaged, or delayed in the post. If there is a voting tie in any category, a judging panel will choose the outright winner. The Editor’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
