2017 MRRL Internet Hall of Fame Nominees

The 2017 vote will open on January 1, 2017, and will close on midnight June 1, 2017.  During that time period, please select five artists and cast your votes on the MRRL automated voting system on the sidebar titled Vote For 2017 Hall of Fame.  You may vote for less than five, but you may only vote for a particular artist once.  The list of eligible Michigan artists for 2017 is listed below.  You can use it to quickly look over the field before voting. It is much slower going from page to on the actual ballot.  The top three artists in the online vote will be inducted into the MRRL Internet Hall of Fame in June 2017.

Please also vote for ten songs.  They are on a separate automated ballot on the sidebar - Vote For 2017 Legendary Songs. Again you can vote for less than ten, but you can only vote for a particular song once.
