    Can LIME set up a voting booth for people who don’t have androids and fancy phones? Some of us are willing to put up a 20$ for Leslassa with the votes costing 0.69 cents USD(?) each after first vote.
    The only way to promote Dominica is by supporting this girl right now because she is doing a fantastic job.

    Good luck to you again, over and over again. God bless you!

    Voted online, support to be able to vote daily, but not working for me. My phone cannot support the app. I would like to a national campaign at least 2 voting days weekly where we just vote vote vote, If she gets the most vote, she automatically go into the top 6. WHat an accomplishment this would be for DOMINICA. LETS DO THIS. LIME DIGICEL MARPIN DISCOVER DOMINICA. LETS WIN. DOMINICA TO THE WORLD

    September 18, 2013

    Why isn’t there any promo on Marpin, SAT, LIME etc to inform people who would love to vote but do not know what is going on? Team up with LIME, set up the APP so individuals can go in and pay for a vote, at least $1.50. Come on! 9 days to go and she is in 2nd place when so much more can be done. Shame if she doesn’t make it because of lack of support.
    DFC wah gwan!!???

      That’s an excellent suggestion, but people can also take advantage of FREE voting via http:www.pageantology.net/ as well.

      I’ve been voting twice a day while at work and when at home, and even went the extra mile to persuade my European and Asians colleagues to vote for her as well. :lol:

      Each morning when the see me in the lift we all burst out laughing and they say, “we’re just on or way to vote for Dominica” now, before we get told off. hehehalololol I work with some lovely people and they are so kind to cast their daily votes for our “Nature Isle” jewel.

      The now class themselves as honorary “Nature Islanders” – Dominicans and are already planning their holiday to visit with me next year to enjoy the Independence festivities, World Creole’ Music Festival, Creole’ in the Park, etc, etc, etc, etc…… 

      They’re so impressed with how eloquently she speaks and they keep commenting on how authentically Dominican her diction is, plus they like the way she carries herself and believe she’s one to watch. :-D

      As one of my colleagues commented that’d be a wrap if Dominicans in Dominica, plus those around the globe actively vote multiple times on a daily basis, she’ll really excel and do well.

      You know what I believe so as well and continue to forward to friends, colleagues and family as well as acquaintances encouraging them to vote.

      We can do this people so let’s get voting!!!!! :-D

      I’ve noticed the statistics on http:www.pageantology.net/ gives a totally different current placing for this segment, so I’m not sure which is most accurate, but let’s continue to vote and support nonetheless.

      Blessings and best wishes Leslassa and Dominica!!!!!

    • HibiscusDominica1
      September 19, 2013

      Sweety, if you’re going to download the app on your phone, I’d say your best bet is to use the one advertised on the official “Miss World” website, as the non-official ones are likely to contain viruses and shouldn’t be used.

      The other option is to do what I do and use http:www.pageantology.net/ which is on the official “Miss World” website.

      Its great you also voting and please do encourage others who are not doing so or perhaps may not even know they can, to vote, as our island is receiving the much needed publicity and people are starting to ask, “just where is that “Nature Isle.”  
