[Vingle Elections] Educate Yourself Before Voting!
Phew! It's been quite a rollercoaster for the Vingle elections, especially this past week. Almost a month ago 5 candidates began campaigning for the title of "Vingle President" that's it really, you don't get anything except for bragging rights, but STILL.
In order for Vinglers to vote, it's important to remember to educate yourself. Similar to the real elections, we want to read and know WHY we are voting for who we are voting for.

Here's what you need to know before we hit the voting "booths" on Friday!

This team was almost out of the race... with the announcement on
BUT THEN, today we received the announcement that HE IS BACK. And promising even more...this time : AirGuitars and Air Guitar lessons.

What does this team promise?

Air Guitars, Air Guitar Lessons, Australian soda, cake, gluten free cake, and sports gifs
(did I miss something?)

The first to announce her candidacy, this lady took to the Vingle elections. the self-proclaimed House of Cards "Frank Underwood" she prides herself on being blunt and honest.

What does this team promise?

Honesty, badass music skills, and lots of #hashtags. Well, sort've... In a card she stated that she doesn't have promises but more "goals" check out all of them <<HERE>>

What is a taco cat actually? Well, turns out this candidate is actually a HUMAN raised by cats in the galaxy... (Where the tacos came in is still up for debate).

What does this team promise?

Pizza. Lot of pizza.
Also, supporter @danidee promises an Apple Fritter recipe if the team wins!

Supported by @AlloBaber this candidate came out of the shadows of the creative writing sphere. Essentially the male version of Roseanne, he promises a lot of blunt honesty but laughs.

What does this team promise?

Consistently open mindeness and badass writing that gives you feels. Check out @quiteone's writing on Vingle <<HERE>>

After GhostGate, @paulisaghost promised he would come back as a president. Though many people questioned his ability to run for president (being a ghost and all), he has yet to step down.

What does this team promise?

"Vote for Paul or He'll Haunt Your House" is essentially his slogan.

How does voting work?

1. We vote on Friday the 13th (I promise it won’t be too scary).
2. I’m asking that all candidates respond with a closing statement in the comments!
3. Voting for the candidate will be done through “Liking” their comment!
4. Voting will be for 48 hours!
I encourage supporters of candidates to comment their support, but also tag their friends to support their candidate! We want this election to be BIG.
Any questions let me know!

Thank you all for expressing your interest in voting! Now let's all get educated before the big day!

If you want to see everything that happened during the elections, feel free to peruse the Vingle Elections 2015 Collection <<HERE>> and read all the cards that went into the elections!

@TessStevens is my vote. smart, kind, fucking great at being right in the middle of a subject and not taking sides until the whole argument is presented neutrally. she sat through the whole GOP debate. that takes stamina. go @TessStevens !!!
I bounced in my seat like an idiot, following Pusheen's happy bounce :3 boing boing boing. we're related somewhat. on the side, I've decided my vote :3 the real question is How to vote. do we comment somewhere?
