There is also an option for Chippie-users to indicate that they will not vote. Today has chosen the UTS Chippie network as its partner because it has the largest number of mobile users on the island. The polling ends on Tuesday afternoon. Today will publish the results on Wednesday. Chippie-users have only one vote. Double votes will be eliminated when UTS compiles the results.
