POLLS ARE OPEN FOR POLITICAL FILM SOCIETY AWARDS FOR  2006 
The ballot below asks members to accept the top film in each  category by 
February 28. The Executive Board will meet at 8481 Allenwood Road, Los Angeles, 
on March 1 at 8 p.m. to count  ballots. 
HOW TO VOTE IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN ALL THE  FILMS 
The three voting choices have  special meanings. If you mark YES, you are 
saying that you  agree, after seeing the film, that the content merits an award. 
If you mark  NO, you have seen the film and believe that the content is  
unworthy of consideration for an award. If you mark UNDECIDED, you have not seen 
the film  or just have no opinion regarding the merits. Consult the Political 
Film Society  website for reviews of all films. The deadline for all e-mail 
ballots is  February 28, 2007. Return to [log in to unmask]
