VOTING RULES & METHODS
Parents and legal guardians (13+) can place a vote for their child (12 and under) by going to AcademyKidsChoice.ca or academy.ca/kidschoice (the “Voting Website”). Parents will need to create a user profile in order to cast your vote by registering with your email; registrants will be asked to provide the following information:
- Parent’s email
- Parent’s name
- Parent’s province
- Child’s first name
- Child’s age
In an attempt to provide reliable policing of suspicious activity, we offer sign-in exclusively via email login. Parents agree that only existing personal or business email addresses will be used for the purposes of fan voting. Creating new emails for the sole purpose of voting for the Shaw Rocket Fund Kids’ Choice Award is considered cheating, and any votes suspected of being cast in such a way will be disqualified.
All voting must be done via the Voting Website using a registered email address.
Voters are allotted 100 votes per day through the Voting Website. A “day” is defined as the 24 hours beginning at midnight ET each day. Please note that if you are not in the Eastern Time zone, your voting period will still be 24 hours long, but will be running from midnight Eastern Time.
Votes are verified through our online portal. Our system counts the total votes per day per nominee. The system then adds those daily votes together for the overall amount in that round.
Voting is open to residents of Canada only.
