Notre Dame junior QB Brady Quinn is one of 28 candidates on www.voteforheisman.com, the public voice in determining the winner of the Heisman Trophy. Quinn has thrown for 1,621 yards this season (324.2 per game) with 13 touchdowns and just three interceptions.
For the 7th consecutive year the public has a voice in determining the winner of the Heisman Trophy by going to www.voteforheisman.com where they can cast a vote for one of the previously nominated candidates or nominate a candidate of their own. Any eligible player in college football who is nominated by 10 people in a one week period of time will be added to the list of eligible players provided that they are a bona fide student of an accredited college or university including the United States Academies. The recipients must be in compliance with the bylaws defining an NCAA student athlete.
Voters may cast one vote per week and are required to provide a valid email address to protect the integrity of the voting process.
Voting will continue through December 7th with the first, second , and third place finishers receiving the equivalent of one first (3 points), second (2 points), or third (one point) place vote.
VoteforHeisman.com is the only authorized voting site for the Heisman Trophy, which is awarded annually by the Heisman Trophy Trust to the outstanding player in college football.
Please be advised:
The initial slate of nominees were determined from various media outlets. In no way is the listing of any candidate an endorsement by the Heisman Trophy Trust or VoteforHeisman.com for that candidate.
The independent accounting firm of Deloitte tabulates all of the Heisman ballots cast by the media and living previous winners. Deloitte is responsible for mailing the ballots and voting instructions. Since 2002, electors have the option of sending their completed ballot to Deloitte via mail or voting online via a secured website, created and maintained by Deloitte personnel. Deloitte tabulates all ballots and tallies the votes according to the point system outlined above. The individual with the most points receives The Heisman Memorial Trophy.
The 2005 Heisman ballots are mailed out on Wednesday, November 16th 2005….. The ballots are due back to Deloitte, by Wednesday, December 6th. Again, there are 923 votes for 2005.
Ballots are void unless signed by the elector. A first, second and third choice must be indicated on each ballot. The Heisman Committee created the point system in an effort to eliminate any sectional favoritism.
