HOW TO VOTE IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN ALL THE FILMS
The three voting choices have special meanings. If you mark YES, you are saying that you agree, after seeing the film, that the content merits an award. If you mark NO, you have seen the film and believe that the content is unworthy of consideration for an award. If you mark UNDECIDED, you have not seen the film or just have no opinion regarding the merits. Consult the Political Film Society website for reviews of all films. The deadline for all e-mail ballots is February 28, 2007. Return to polfilms@aol.com.
