This includes (but is not limited to) systematic vote creation other than those by actual individuals; use of disposable email services; and creation of domains specifically for the purposes of vote rigging. Where sufficient evidence exists that a Artist or promoter nominated in the poll is involved in such practices, we reserve the right to disqualify that Artist or promoter.
