Voting is now open for 1918, where we’ll be electing one candidate.
We had some issues last year, so just a reiteration of the rules . . .
Voters must explain their ballot, at a minimum a sentence or two about the people they are voting for, preferably more.
You also have to explain why you didn’t vote for the returning top 10, this year that is:
Elmer Flick, Joe Kelley, Willie Keeler, Charlie Bennett, Jimmy Collins, Joe McGinnity, Bob Caruthers and Frank Grant. I suppose Sam Thompson and Rube Waddell are in the top 10 returnees, as well, though they didn’t finish in the top 10 last year.
Likewise, I think we should add another minor requirement/suggestion (I hate being the cop), if you are voting for someone who didn’t finish in the top 20 last year, it’s probably a good idea to give an in-depth (more than one sentence probably - unless it’s a helluva sentence :-) reason as to why. Convince us as to why we’re missing the boat!
John Murphy has written up the suggested amendment for requirements of new voters and for challenging a ballot, I’ll post it later today.
