OK. This is a rule that needs to be adjusted. Due reasons beyond our control, we have not been using the 13th as a voting date. Entries do not close until the 21st. (An oversight on my part). The rule will be edited to show entries go until Midnight the 21st.
The 13th was never a voting day; It was an entry deadline. All I did was do away with the "bud show", and allow members to enter up to the 21st each month. So voting still has never started before the 20th. That was total BS)
This is also the deadline I have been using for the contest for months.
Voting and entries close when I make the announcement. Tonight is the entry deadline, and at Midnight voting counts.
We might allow the day early votes, so as not to cause confusion. For you new participants. I call the deadlines every month. Some months we got started late, and the dates were adjusted. We found it better this way in order to allow more entries.
