2017 BONO Readers’ Poll FAQ 

1.) Why do I have to complete 25 percent of the ballot?

The 36-vote minimum prevents targeted “ballot stuffing” and makes the voting more fair for all of the candidates.

2.) How do I win the Experience New Orleans Prize Package?

Take the time to answer all 143 questions and you will be entered to win a $100 gift card to Emeril's, a $25 gift card to The Broad Theater and a family membership to the Audubon Institute. One voter will be randomly selected. Once you log in to vote, the system will save your choices; so you have until July 30, 2017 to complete your ballot.

3.) Where is the submit button? How do I know if I submitted my ballot?

There is no final submit button. Once you hit vote, it should say “voted” next to your entry and your choice for that question is recorded.

4.) Why do I have to make an account?

The software requires users to create an account — but we don’t view it as a bad thing, it helps prevent ballot stuffing.

5.) I’m having trouble registering. Help!

We would suggest trying a different browser and device. If that doesn't work, please let us know by emailing

6.) How do I campaign for my business?

7.) Why are some businesses coming up and others aren’t when I type in the nominate field?

Businesses and names are not pre-populated in the fields. Once something is entered, it automatically saves, so it may pop up when other voters begin to type their own responses. At the end of the first round, we manually go through every category and merge all of the entries that are similar (various spellings, etc.) to make sure no votes are missed.
