For 1952, each voter should rank their top 10 players from both leagues combined.

Balloting is scheduled to close at 4pm EST on 2 April 2014.

Anyone can vote, even if you do not normally participate in Hall of Merit discussions. If have never participated in an MMP election, just post a preliminary ballot in the discussion thread by 1 April 2014.

For detailed rules see one of our previous ballots.
