A special thanks to all who have voted and continue to vote for Tehachapi. I couldn't be happier to witness how this contest has unified Tehachapi and reminded us of how passionate we as a community are in providing safe, public parks, recreation and resources for our pets. Together we are realizing a 'real' dog park in Tehachapi! - Matt Young, TVRPD District Manager.

Nothing left to do, but pray and wait for the results now. Fingers crossed for Tehachapi. Dogs rock ! I think all had their share of voting issues. If you're experiencing that now, PLEASE keep trying, your's is the vote that could take T over the top. Thanks!

Yes, constantly. I've lost a lot of votes because it just wouldn't let me vote. Sometimes I logged in and out three times before I could vote.

Anne Pear-White

Hello! I'm having a ton of trouble voting today. When I verify my email, it keeps denying me and now it told me I've already voted today, which I have not. Anybody else having a problem??

Jordan Reclusado

I'm going nuts. I've really been trying to help and vote twice a day and it's been going ok for most of the time when in Sweden but for the last couple of weeks I've been travelling around in Europe and the FB voting has worked but not the other one. I have to give my email but I can't! I promise to keep in trying ... Hope you'll win guys!
