    I loved all the pictures this year. You all really outdid yourselves. It was so hard to pick only three.

    Can anyone explain the thinking behind why we vote for three instead of each member only voting for one?

    Maybe to spread out the votes a little bit. Get a wider range of opinions. If you have to vote for only one then it would probably just come down to two or three favorites and that's it.

    Perhaps, partly because a good percentage of the votes come from people who have a tortoise in the competition.
    Just voting for yourself (as most would) wouldn't be very exciting and it's the second and third votes that select the winners.
    Also with only a third of the total number of votes cast, the chances of ties is greatly increased.
    Just my thoughts.
