Can I wage a campaign to get votes?

How does voting work?
"Austin Music Awards" voting is split into two rounds. In the preliminary round, voters wrote in candidates for awards in more than 100 categories. The write-ins with the most votes, combined with selections from a governing board of industry vets, are in the final round, where readers again vote on their favorites.
Do the totals from the preliminary round count toward the final tally?
No, the voting totals reset in the final round.
