So have I, dharma... thanks for bringing this here.

Quality, agelessness, substance, and style... unequalled. If based on these, Leonard will win.

Any idea why they would need your phone number in order for you to vote? I would think an e-mail address would be sufficiant to badger you with products and services.

By casting your vote you're also entered into a prize draw - the winners get free tickets to the MOJO awards - so they need to be able to contact the winners.

MOJO promise NOT to give out your contact details to any third parties.

I've cast my vote too.

would it be possible to change the title of this subject item so that people could quickly scan and understand that they could vote and make a difference?
(.... eg "please vote NOW to get a MOJO award for Leonard" ??? ... just a thought ...)

I have just cast my vote but if you ask me Leonard should have been in all five categories . The third one could have been retitled " the fifteen year break act "
