This is a call for ballots for the first round of the annual quizbowl poll. The next round will be a pre-nationals poll taken after Fake ICT. Here’s how it works: preferably after doing some research and evaluating statistics email me a list of what you believe to be the top 25 quizbowl programs, ranked in order from 1st to 25th. Note that I said programs; you may not include B teams in your rankings. I reserve the right to reject your ballot if it is wildly out of sync with the general national consensus, overly regional, or improper in some other way. If I reject your ballot, I will notify you and give you the opportunity to submit a new one. Ballots must be submitted to me at ekwartler at gmail dot com by January 16th at 11:59 PM.
