Nickname voting update

Marquette University and Advantage Research (the firm conducting the voting process for a new nickname) today revealed that more than 22,000 votes already have been cast in the first round of nickname voting. Per the MJS, this is more than twice the number of folks who completed the nickname survey last fall.


That number is extraordinary -- that's roughly 20% of the eligible voting population for MU, which greatly exceeds any reasonable expectations, and must be far more than the average response rate for similar surveys/votes.

Anyway, folks have until Sunday, June 5 to vote in this round (Advantage Research will staff phone banks through the weekend)....and on June 7, the final round of voting will open.
