Senior Favorites Ballot Revealed

By Aztec Gold Staff


The ballot for senior favorites is complete and voting will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 1 in all senior English classes. Students must have an email to participate in the online ballot, which will be collected through Google Forms.


This is how the names currently on the ballot got there.

Yearbook adviser Vanessa Juarez and yearbook editor-in-chief Danielle Miller were the only ones to view the nomination results and counted up the votes. The names with the three highest amounts of votes in each category made it onto the ballot.


Once voting is complete on Tuesday, the winners of each category will be announced and notified. However, if one person wins first place in more than one category, that person will have to choose which category they will claim the title in and will have to forfeit the other category to the runner-up. Also, all winners must participate in a photo shoot to be held at on Sunday, Dec. 4, 2016 at Glamour Shots studio. If a winner cannot participate in the shoot, they will automatically forfeit their spot to the runner-up in that category.
