MBO Terms & Conditions
The Miss Bahamas Organization invites you to vote for your favorite contestants with all votes cast counting towards a percentage of the contestants overall standing to reach the Top 5. Each vote carries the same weight, so you are encouraged to vote as many times as you like. You are allowed one free vote each day. Additional votes are also available for sale.
The votes are cumulative, and it is vital for you to continue voting for your favorites because your votes will make up 15% of the contestants scores to determine which five (5) will escape the dreaded “chopping block” – the hot seats reserved for the contestants whose combined preliminary scores and votes are the lowest in the competition.
Voting begins on Thursday July 6 and will be available until Saturday July 29, with the lines officially closing at midnight. EST.
