Vote Now and Qualify to Win One of Three Kindles!
Please vote now and help build a stronger AWP. You must log in to our website to vote. 48% of our members have already voted, but we must reach 60% to achieve a quorum. If you don't care to study the issues and vote, you may simply choose to have to be counted as present, and that will help us achieve a quorum. As a special incentive, AWP will randomly select three prize winners among the total voters and those counted as present. The winners will receive a Kindle Fire or one of two Kindle Paperwhites. To qualify for these giveaways, all you need to do is to be a nonstudent member and vote any which way you like or to state that you wish to be counted as present to achieve a quorum. The prizes will be awarded once we achieve a quorum. Please vote now!
