    In theory, isn't the stated vote the actual tally? Isn't that why we vote?

    An affirmation of what you voted for. Not everyone returns to the thread to "state" what they preferred .
    It's used as the first of two tiebeakers, the last being a coin flip.

    Actually, forevershellfish hasn't cast their vote so it should now be tied at 16. Shall I add one for forevershellfish?

    Yes that should be fine, he/she explicitly stated itt who they want to cast their vote for so I see no issue.
    What the hell happened here? It hasn't happened yet.

    Even though (s)he publicly stated Breakfast club (my choice also), (s)he still had four days left to vote. The person is new, so I understand, but going forth, we should be careful voting for someone when a poll is open.

    Correcting an incorrect vote is of course allowed.

    "Timeless" ? PB is a a fantasy film, it's made to be timeless, that's the point of fantasy. The Breakfast Club, on the other hand, is of an era, and the fact that it remains "timeless" in its appeal is a testament to the themes that still resonate in school-age children even today. I venture to guess that this epic battle comes down more to the age of those voting than anything else.

    Stated votes is the tiebreaker. In the event of a tie of stated votes, mae flips a coin. I think the coin flip has only been needed once.
