All the delegates have collected their first votes the first 24 hours and everyone had got votes from outside their own country in addition to the national votes. Some fans and friends out there are trying to support their favourites with more than one vote per day, but the system registers only one vote per IP address per day.The USA is the single country outside Europe that has given the most votes till now, but fans in South-America seem to be especially eager to vote for their favourite delegate in Europe. Votes are also coming in from Asia, Australia, Africa and North-America. The European country without a delegate in MGE this year that has given the most votes so far is Russia.
The online vote is one out of eleven challenges for the delegates in Mr Gay Europe. It is all about building support and networking and to gather support and promote yourself in order to collect votes. The delegate that gets the most votes is automatically fast-tracked to the semi-final.
