Joseph, because our polls are unscientific and we've run into some problems with people gaming them in the past, using comments and allowing one vote per day was a fairer system to ensure that the person who receives the most legitimate votes wins. Voting still open for another half hour or so ... there could be a last dash deluge of votes. :)

Oh, I should add that we have separate articles in the other two regions as well, so we have to add all the votes together from the three separate articles to determine the winner, who won't be determined solely on the votes on this article alone.
