Record vote in poll for Beard of the Year 2016
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that there has been a record vote in the 2016 Beard of the Year poll.
The on-line poll had attracted just under 5,000 unique votes when it closed at midday on 24th December.
The votes are checked over the Christmas period to make sure there are no irregularities in voting patterns and the winners are announced on 29th December.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, it’s too early to say who the winners are until votes are checked but what is clear is that none of the top five have won what is often seen as the ultimate beard accolade before.
