BTW, I am not affiliated with this conference other than that I submitted a proposal at this time. I just wanted to post this to raise awareness, as I did not see a post already on the site promoting the voting round. One of the things I know I have experienced with past conferences is not knowing enough or being reminded enough of the deadlines. The uniqueness about this event is that the #gov20 community has a chance to vote on submissions to help shape the conference.
