What race you ask. The King and Queen election race of course. I was just given today monetary votes for one of our nominated couples.
Let me explain how this works. Every year we have a couple crowned as King and Queen of Mardi Gras. You can nominate friends, family members or yourself by writing the nominees’ names on a nomination envelope and filling it with dollars (votes).
Yes, our election works just like a real one. The candidates with the most money win.
You can see by our graph down below that Marianne and Richard have already hit the ground running. They’re not going to waste any time waiting for Saturday night to campaign for votes. Winning King and Queen of the twentieth is kind of a big deal.
I know what your going to say. “They’re so far ahead there’s no way to catch them.” Now that’s not true. They just happen to have a little bit of a head start. If you want to beat them your just going to have to work a bit harder on Saturday night.
