We only had 34 votes and about a 24 hr voting period ... maybe give them MORE TIME to vote and we won't have these tie breakers ? It's not a race to get the list posted is it ?
I doubt the time will matter at this stage. It's always been a one day turn around, but in the beginning we'd have 60 votes in that time. Now that we are towards the bottom, people likely care less, and have less knowledge of these prospects, so they abstain.
EDIT: Additionally, this is my second year doing this and this is the first time we've had a tiebreaker needed, so I don't see this becoming a regular thing. It may actually speak to the depth of our prospect base as well.
