The race was tight, with 3,392 ballots collected at the 149th Midwinter Meeting in February and another 5,769 votes cast online through March 31.

CDS staff is still working out some of the details regarding the molars’ move to our plaza on Michigan Avenue this summer, and we will post information on our website as they are settled.

We thank all the sponsors who participated, and we also thank all those who voted both on site and online.
