But don't be disheartened! This is taking into account the percentages of people who've voted as of midnight last night--about 800. Because we have so many cities with less than five votes, this only shows the top fifty cities as of then. We have had over 200 more notes since the chart's data was compiled, but as we have to sort it by hand (to fix errors such as those noted below), we're only going to do a chart once a week or so. Also, we're still soooo early. Getting at least 10 votes for your city put you in the top fifty. Imagine if you could get your whole class to vote for your city--or your whole library--you'd have this competition in the bag!
And as a side note, I want to emphasize how important it is to add your state to your city. There are, for example, two Portlands--one in Oregon and one in Maine. If you just put "Portland" and don't add your state, I'm not sure which city you're voting for--and those cities are on complete opposite sides of the nation! There are also three Londons--each in three different countries. Two different Decaturs, several Springfields, and more. I'm going to try to contact the people who've not made their entries clear enough, but it would really help us out if you remember to enter your state with your city.
Thanks again for entering everyone! We are stunned and so excited about this wonderful response!!
