Cast your votes for Ray Stevens: An Update

Good Sunday morning...an update from yesterday morning shows that Ray Stevens is in 4th place on the vote tally on the Hit Parade Hall of Fame web-page. Again, I have no idea just how much of an impact the vote tallies are due to the fact that the hall of fame has inducted multiple performers each year and that people can vote more than once, but I assume when it's all said and done the top 4 or 5 with the most votes play a factor in the decision making process!? Based upon the vote tally as of right now the top-2 include The Lettermen at #2 and Ronnie Milsap at #1. The Turtles are #3 and Ray is #4.

Now, to be specific, there is a large separation in vote numbers between the #2 act and The Turtles.

#4: Ray Stevens
#3: The Turtles
#2: The Lettermen
#1: Ronnie Milsap

The fact that people can vote more than once plays a big factor, too. If 1000 people, for example, vote 20 times well that's 20,000 votes easily. I only voted once...and I'm sure that other people voted only once because there was no announcement that people could vote more than once. I think voting more than once skews the numbers but if it's something that the site allows then it's perfectly fine to vote more than once if you choose to. There are 12 nominees for 2012 (induction to be in January 2013) and the Top-4 vote leaders are listed above. As mentioned elsewhere I have no idea the impact that the votes have considering people can vote more than once.
