You can vote once each day from every computer that you have access to, ie Home, Work, Laptop, Smartphone, etc. now through August 6th.


I have access to 5 computers+phone at home, but I wonder if they mean per computer or per ip address, since all 5 computers will be coming from the same ip..dont' want to do something to mess up your chances.

The IP address is for each individual computer, not your ISP so yes please vote on everyone and every smartphone you have Smile

That would be true, but I have all my computers hooked up to a router, so to the rest of the world, all 4 computers have the same IP address. I can use my cell phone on the cell network and get a seperate IP that way...but I was concerned by the IP of my computers.

Hey zman,

In looking at the website and how files/cookies are being placed/changed on computers when you vote we have figured that there are using a combination of IP address logging on their servers and local storage data placed on your computer combined with a date code to create a unique identity for each vote.

Your computers at your house do all have unique dynamicly assiged IP address on your side of the router and it may appear that they all come from the same IP to the outside world but when you combine that with local storage information, cookies/files etc, you can have multiple votes all coming from the same house/location. They understand that most houses have multiple computer for multiple people and each one is allowed to vote.

So in short you should not have any issues voting from each of your computers everyday.
