How the voting works at TheFitExpo:
– WOW the Crowd is a closed competition. No one is able to enter the stage area after 10 minutes. At which time entrance will be closed to new attendees. Anyone is welcome to join the action or watch from the seats provide in the stage area corral. Upon entrance to the competition, persons within the corral will line up to receive their voting coin near the entrance and will “vote” with their coin near the exit. You Must be 10 years of age or older to vote.
– There will be NO in’s and out’s of the Group Training Zone Area. Exiting the area will result in loss of voting privileges.
– In addition to (1) vote per attendee in the stage area, there will also be a “golden coin” given to one guest judge who will be announced at the beginning of the competition and who does not have a connection to any of the talent. That vote is worth 5 coins.
– Voting coins will be counted by Wow the Crowd staff in a secure location and supervised by FitExpo management.
– In the event of a tie, if time permits there will be a dance off. Each contestant will have 2 minutes to showcase their stuff 1 more time. Each of the two contestants will turn their back on the crowd and the attendees will line up behind the person they choose to cast their vote. The guest judge will count the persons standing in each line and will announce who the winner is. If time does not permit, a name will be drawn out of a hat to produce the winner in front of the crowd.
