Partial and Unofficial Results for FRCA 2014 – Week 1


It’s been a week since we started the voting. I think it’s about time for an update, right? First, some numbers:

Total votes on first day: 1,264 (2013 – 520)
Total votes at the end of the first week of the voting period: 6,099 (2013 – 2,919)

Amazing results, aren’t they? But the voting period is still far from over, and we believe there are more people who need to know about this, so have you told your friends, family, and other people to vote yet? :D Make sure you do!
