I’ve decided to vote this month and I’ve Read all the stories already,How many can I vote for?

Since we have 11 entries, it'll be 3 votes.

Ah, good... then this means that you can still vote even if you haven't submitted an entry, yes?

In which case, I have read them all too and am ready to vote  :)

The more votes the better as a rule. And if it can encourage you to participate, then all the better! :-D

If you split the reader’s only  vote I wonder if you would get the same leaders or would it be different?

I don’t won’t the voting split just wondering.

It'd be interesting only if we had a much wider pool of voters, but I get your curiosity.

From what I've seen, the votes are usually very widely spread, especially in the months where we have just 1 or 2 votes, so there wouldn't be a meaningful split between writers and readers, I think.
