You can vote as many times as you want and you DON'T have to fill out any identifying info if you choose not to.
Just go directly to PAGE 5 and PAGE 6 and vote for me in the two categories if you are short on time.

OK, I voted. Now I want to know how your race went on Saturday, if you were able to cross the line with your lips of shame held high, and so forth.
