Do I have to create an account to vote? No, you don't have to create an account to vote. However, if you would like to cast votes for multiple horses, we recommend creating an account so you can purchase votes in advance to be stored in your voting piggy bank until you are ready to use them.

How can I vote for more than one horse without having to check out each time I vote? You will have to log in or create an account to purchase your votes in advance to be stored in your piggy bank where you can award those votes to as many (or as few pets) as desired - no minimum of votes per pet, just a $5 minimum purchase. By purchasing votes in advance, you can give one pet 3 votes and another 2 votes or you could give 5 pets 1 vote each!
