VOTING FOR A BABY

HOW DO I VOTE?

To vote for your own baby, make sure you've signed into the Baby Search website, visit your baby's entry page and click on the 'VOTE FOR MY BABY' button. You will then receive a confirmation email where you'll need to confirm your vote to make it count.

For those who are not voting on their own entries, visit the Baby Gallery and search for the bub you wish to vote for. Once you’re on the bub's entry page, you'll need to register your email address and password (only if you're not already logged in) before you press the ‘VOTE NOW’ button so we can send you an email to confirm your vote. Once you've voted for a bub, you cannot vote for the same bub again, but you can vote for as many other bubs as you like.

WHERE CAN I SEE HOW MANY VOTES I HAVE?

So the competition remains fun and fair, votes will be hidden. The shortlist, which includes babies selected by both the People's Choice, Bonds' Choice and Video Bub categories will be announced on Tuesday 22nd March 2016.

WHY CAN'T I SHARE OR SEE MY BABY IN THE GALLERY?

If you entered with a photo and/or a video by the closing time on the 3pm on 2nd March, midday AEDT (date amended 1st March 2016) and your photo/video met the required guidelines, your entry would have been approved and should appear in the gallery. Please allow at least 24 hours for us to review your entry.

CAN PEOPLE OVERSEAS VOTE

Anyone from anywhere can vote, just follow the instructions explained under the 'HOW DO I VOTE?' question above.
