Can I vote for myself? What happens if I do?
Votes submitted by your customers are the only votes that will be counted. It has been noted that in their enthusiasm some staff have resorted to voting for the hotels they work in – perhaps on behalf of the customers. Please actively discourage this as this is very easily detected at the auditing stage and could result in disqualification of the outlet concerned.
