Barring technical glitches (and whoever heard of technical glitches?) this year’s poll will go live at noon. There are 130-something categories and you’ll have until Sept. 22 to vote so don’t feel pressured to rush through it. You have time for research! But definitely take a look to familiarize yourself with the new poll system we’re using this year. You’ll need to register, but that’s a one-time-only thing, and registration will let you enter any future prairie dog contests. Plus there’s a $1000-value prize at stake so it’s worth two minutes of your time.
