The results are in!
has taken a tally of all the votes submitted for the round 1 beta kids voice actors! She made sure to be careful and try not to miss any votes. The good thing is, there is a pretty wide margin between many of the numbers, so even if a mistake was made (hopefully not, considering the attention I payed to keeping the votes straight!) it probably wouldn't make a big difference anyways.
There were a few things that required attention, and those will be mentioned shortly, after the vote totals are listed.
The top vote-getters for each section will be sent a small questionnaire regarding some important info the group will need to know, as well as some stuff just to know a little bit about them. These questionnaires will be sent as DA notes from ! The answers these candidates have should either be sent back to kk or to the group by way of the handy "send a note" button located on the group toolbar above.
We had some great auditions! We really appreciate the work everybody did sending in auditions for us. We thank all participants, be they fans who voted or potential voice actors! Also, a big thanks to anybody who spread the word, especially on sites like Tumblr and DA. We apologize if you missed the chance to vote or enter the competition, and encourage everybody who didn't make it this time to try again some other time when we audition for more characters.

As you can see, we have some issues with ties and a missing 5th person! Here's our solution!
For John, who is missing a fifth candidate, , who did not vote, will be vetting a fifth person to go on.
bulletgreen:Jade and Dave have ties with 6 highest scores including the ties. To fix this problem, we will just interview a 6th person. Hooray, one more chance to show what you've got!
Though people are tied to a spot for Rose, there are only 5 highest scorers including the tie, so there is no problem.
So the deviants who will officially be receiving questionnaires are:
John - , , , , and (picked by to have a fifth)
Rose - , , , , and
Jade - , , , , , and
Dave - , , , , , and
Other Stuff! Important for Contest Winners!
We recognize there are a few people who will be in Round 2 for multiple roles. We encourage you to audition for both parts, even if you only want to accept 1!
In addition, we will offer winners of the Round 2 the chance to choose which characters they voice if they get a majority of the votes for 2 or more characters (ex. First place for Rose and Dave is the same person, which would be a weird situation...) They may choose to voice both or just 1 of them if they'd like. We leave that decision up to them when the time comes if that ends up being the situation.
About Round 2!
The second round will feature another audition with a script specially prepared for each character. A variety of lines will be presented as well as different emotions noted that we'd like to hear. A copy of the script will be provided to both listeners and entrants. The script is not a cohesive monologue but rather a mixture of different lines.
Round 2 will not begin until all the questionnaires have been returned (2 weeks from when they are sent -6/17- is the time limit, but we will start earlier if we get them all back before then) and the second round scripts have been finished. The scripts have much of the lines in them already, but several more lines are being added at the moment.
Round 2 will again be decided by majority vote. The entrant with the most votes for a character will be the official VA for that character. The ,I>entrant with the second most votes for a character will be the understudy</I> for that character (they will take over in case the VA resigns, goes missing for a long time, etc, and also have the opportunity to work on fun, in-house character voice acting like for the nakodiles).
Any ties in Round 2 will be decided by who reserves her vote until the end for that very purpose.
