3/4 Edition Voting Results for Part 3: The Nominating Polls

This post is designed to announce what songs from Part 3 the 3/4 Edition Voting will be added to the Level 1 Polls (Part 2) for the chart starting with the 3/11 Edition Voting.  I will first list what songs made it, separating them by categories, and then will give you the entire results.

Poll Winners:
There are 6 polls and the song with the most votes on each of those polls wins a spot on the Fan Voted Chart.  If two or more songs tie, all of them get a spot.

Notes:
Before I add the songs to Part 2, I sort them by their Weighted Scores in order to give them a tiebreaker for as long as they are on Level 1 together.

Weighted Score = # of votes × # of songs on the poll.

KEY:
AUS = Australia
CAN = Canada
IND = IndieWorld
RM = Roots Music (Americana & Bluegrass)
TEX = Texas Regional
USA = United States

My thanks to all who voted this week and I hope you come back next week and for weeks to come!
