People’s Vote for the Beard of the Year 2018 closes at midnight on Xmas Eve.

The Beard Liberation Front the informal network of beard wearers, has said voting for the Beard of the Year 2018 will close at midnight on 24th December in what is the ultimate People’s Vote of the year

The top 6 beard wearers will then head into the Beard of the Year Electoral College.

The College will look at the positive public impact that the beard wearer has had during the year and allocate the remainder of the 40% of the possible votes to allow the winner or winners of Beard of the Year to be named on 28th December

The 6 names currently set to enter the Electoral College are:

Peter Coles

Xand van Tulleken

Al Wall

Philip Glanville

Jeremy Corbyn

Owen Tudor

The BLF say that the shortlist comprises those whose beard has had a positive impact in the public eye during the year rather than the style or the length of the beard or the views of the beard wearer.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, we hear a lot about the People’s Vote these days and the Beard of the Year is a great example of the process. The question is clear: which beard wearer has made the most positive impact in public during 2018. Theresa May has no influence over the result (though she is free to vote as an individual) and neither does the EU.

For the first time this year the result will be determined by a combination of the public vote and an Electoral College of leading beard wearers and pogonophiles. The public vote will count for 60% while the Electoral College will take into account the wider positive public image and impact of poll leaders.

The BLF says that there were concerns about the impact of Bots in the 2017 poll and the Electoral College ensures a more level playing field.
