So, there has been a lot of controversy by people on how do you actually get to vote when trying to vote for people in the RedEye Vibin Bachelor/Bachelorette contests.
Hopefully this little tutorial will give you the basics you need in order to vote! (And if I’m still in this contest at the time you read this, a vote for me ;))
First step is to Find the contest in question – My contest is accessed via this URL Hello Bachelors! Voting is now open
You’ll see something looking like this: And once you scroll down a little bit, you’ll see this which tells you how to vote, yet obscured by other text on the screen! Leave a vote for your favorite bachelor in the comments…
So, it seems pretty straightforwardish now – I simply need to comment, right?! Well, that requires me to log in via Twitter, Facebook or ChicagoNow!
So, if you want to login via each of the services you’ll get different options
Clicking on Twitter gives you: Enter your credentials and it grants you the ability to comment using Twitter as your auth!
Clicking on Facebook is mostly a wash – comes up fine! but after putting in creds I get FAIL!
Leaving your only other option to be “Create an account”
I’m not opposed to the create an account function (okay, seriously I really am.. At that point, I’d rather you create a twitter acct ;))
So, once you’re finally logged in, scroll down to the “Leave a Comment” box and say something like “I love you christopher!” or whatever ;)
And there you go then! You aren’t the first to hit challenges while trying to vote, and may not be the least! so until then… here are the tools you need to vote!
So get out there, vote early and vote often (Hey, that’s a chicago thing!) And if you’re looking to vote for me, I appreciate the vote!
