Update 6.30 pm Eastern: Access to the voting seems to be easier again. BA is more than 250 votes ahead tho.
Bump. climateaudit is running a strong 2nd about 200 votes ahead of last year’s winner (Pharyngula) and about 500 votes behind Bad Astronomy. Polls close Nov 8. You can vote once every 24 hours.
Update: Nov 7 10 am: CA is now over 700 votes ahead of Pharyngula and within 125 votes of Bad Astronomy. It’s a horse race.
2 pm Eastern: after getting to within about 70 votes of Bad Ast in the morning, as others have reported, the voting site has become very very hard to access and Bad Astronomy has lengthened its lead over CA to nearly 200 again. Pharyngula has thrown in the towel and has sent its voters to BA with a malediction against CA. (CA is now over 1100 votes ahead of Pharyngula.) Both blogs are getting a LOT of votes as compared to the general “Best Blog” category – both blogs overtook Michelle Malkin this morning and Arianna Huffington this afternoon.
