Starting last night and going for the next 2 days over at the official Star Wars website’s This Is Madness “March Madness” bracket-style voting game, Boba Fett is up against Jango Fett in a match of the clicks.


Here’s a tally of how the vote is going:

  • 3/27/2015 7pm PST: Boba Fett has 66% of the vote
  • 3/27/2015 11pm PST: Boba Fett has 23% of the vote
    This seems very strange: 4 hours and 43% of the vote shifts?
  • 3/28/2015 11am PST: Boba Fett has 31% of the vote
  • 3/28/2015 2:30pm PST: Boba Fett has 36% of the vote
  • 3/28/2015 4:15pm PST: Boba Fett has 37% of the vote
  • 3/28/2015 7:15pm PST: Boba Fett has 39% of the vote
  • 3/29/2015 12:15am PST: Boba Fett has 30% of the vote
    This seems very strange: 5 hours and 9% of the vote shifts?
  • 3/29/2015 10:30am PST: Boba Fett has 32% of the vote
  • 3/29/2015 2:30pm PST: Boba Fett has 34% of the vote
  • 3/29/2015 6:30pm PST: Boba Fett has 35% of the vote
  • 3/29/2015 10:45pm PST: Boba Fett has 36% of the vote
  • 3/30/2015 9:45am PST: Boba Fett has 37% of the vote
  • Voting ended with Boba Fett losing … but on 4/1 (April Fool’s Day no less) they have Boba Fett winning the vote

Let’s keep pushing for Boba Fett to win with 51% if not more!

Last year, Boba Fett won 70% of the vote when he faced off against Jango Fett. Let’s hope it can happen again.

These polls are not scientific and also have one major flaw, which affected the vote last year too. They appear to just use browser cookies to tell if you’ve voted already. Disabling or deleting the “match” cookies set by “,” and anyone can appear to vote again.

That said, there’s word of a “re-count” for the last challenge, where Jar Jar trumped Padme Amidala, claiming “ballot stuffing.”
