Hey Ed Urban, I don't know from what city your from but the rules say two votes per day per person. It might not say proxy voting in the rules but if you already voted twice then that means you can't vote again.

Ed Urban

Sorry, I read the rules and found nothing that says one can't use proxie voting? If so, please show me...... thanks for your time.

Hey everyone petsafe has put this up for everyone to see. No matter what I want East Hartford CT to stay Honest and Super Classy. We are still in this. This is the message from petsafe. Fraudulent votes have recently been removed from the vote totals below. To ensure ALL of your votes count, please understand that legitimate votes are those that come from an account set up by an individual who submits their own votes no more than 2 times per day on petsafe.net, and Facebook, and completes the 7 Sniff Out, correctly, once each Friday. Any other votes found to be outside of the criteria stated in the contest rules are deleted before final vote totals are announced. Vote totals are not final until officially published by PetSafe® at the end of the contest and false voting, of any kind, is strongly discouraged. PetSafe enforces the Official Contest Rules to ensure the integrity of the contest and fairness for all communities. Thank you to everyone who “barks” for their park with enthusiasm, creativity and teamwork!
