For the [H]ard|DCer of the Year, there is no nomination thread because the only worthy candidates are the [H]ard|DCer of the Month winners for the current year.
The poll to choose a winner is done in 2 steps: The first poll will include all 12 winners for the current year and we select only the best 4 winners which will participate in the next round.
If there is a tie in the first 4 ranks, the tie winners will move together. In the second round, the one with the most votes will be declared the winner but if there is a tie, a runoff vote will be held.
Each step will last 10 days.
Time to vote! This is part one of two.
DC'er of the Year for 2015
Get out the vote!
Given that there are only 8 monthly winners, instead of 12, I reserve the right to possibly modify this voting process if doing so would be prudent. I guess we shall see.
