My sister's wedding

My sister is a finalist in a contest to win a free wedding. A local radio station is offering a wedding worth $32,000! There are four finalists, with the winners decided by an online poll, in which you can vote once a day. Would be cool if you guys have a sec to help her win by voting. Vote for Melissa and Mike at http://www.wfasfm.com/Contest/contest.asp! Thanks!


Please me my sister!!!

Thanks guys!

I'm just going to point out the obvious, but Christine and Bill appear to be winning by a slight margin. Anyway, I voted. Good luck to your sister.

I gave M&M a vote even though I wanted to go for the underdogs. Their lead has extended to damn near 4%. It would be interesting to see how perhaps the tfp influences the outcome of this.

Yeah sure...why not?

Hmmmm...
Brian And Erin .95%
Christine and Bill 44.22%
Debra and Matt .98%
Melissa and Mike 51.06%

I wonder what message board Christine and Bill are using?
Ya gotta kinda feel a little sorry for the other two couples. That's gotta be a big poke in the ass.

From the rules:
Quote:
Deadline for voting is June 29, 2006. Only one vote per person per day will be allowed. Results of the voting will be announced on the Wake Up Westchester Morning Show on June 30, 2006.
Oh...and as of midnight, Christine and Bill had 56.21% of the daily vote to Melissa and Mike's 41.02%. My guess...Christine and Bill are doing the same thing. Question is...are we TFPers going to allow some other message board to outdo us? I guess we'll know on the 30th.
On the up side, though...Melissa and Mike hold 57.96% of all votes. But if they don't get those dailies up, they won't hold that lead.

Although it is definately for financial gain, it is also a quick and easy way to help someone elses dream wedding come true. Well, that, and if I didn't vote my fiance probably would have beat me up

Well, it's also a quick and easy way to deprive three other couples of their dream wedding, didn't think of that, did you, Mr. Jerkass?

I voted because of my love of clicking on random links and blindly following orders.

Perhaps delete this thread just before the contest ends, and start a new thread saying "Hey all you Westchestonians that were on vacation all around..." to let us know what happened, because if they were to check the address for all the voters, and find out that we were all around, that may be suspicious... unless they stream their feed live on the net, then we'd be okay.

Brian And Erin

I'm sure the organizers fully expect people to be out begging for votes. They're hoping to draw some more radio listeners by doing this.

I voted, but C&B are receiving more votes today than M&M. Vote early and vote often!
