  1. Reblogged this on In the Dark and commented:
    Polls close at Midnight on Monday 22nd. Whatever the finish, you can bet it won’t be smooth!

  2. Why is it still possible to vote? 1.13 am in austrian time.

  3. We dont normally take polls down. It allows people to view how the vote went

  4. Please Tell me why voting continued after you posted poll closed Conchita wurst was in the lead up until that notice was posted so she is the rightful winner we have screen shots to prove this statement , we don’t wish to be belligerant but she is the winner!

  5. The poll has closed and the voting figures used are those at midnight on 22 December

  6. I hope you know that Conchita is the winner!

  7. If the midnight positions hold firm after the Bartosz votes have been collated from the ‘other’ category then we of course respectfully concede, content in the knowledge that the moral victory is his, hopeful that the awards ceremony is not too besmirched in light of the public’s true verdict that is to be suppressed. Now bask in its magnificence everyone, the people’s beard of 2014: (for work beard) (for home beard)

  8. Congratulations to Conchita Wurst. No matter what the figures say now, by the time this poll was officially closed, she was in 1st place, and she has without a doubt the most beautifully groomed beard.
