Preliminary results are in, and it appears Ripe Bananas has a solid lead in the the non-political category for the post Vegan Marshmellows Roasting Over an Open Fire. Meanwhile, on the political side, dangerous liberty has pulled ahead with Al Franken on Book TV.
And for alliances, the newly-formed Liberal Coalition comes out of the gate strong, leading the contest with 71.4 % participation.

Update: OK folks, there were a few missed votes in the auto-scans, but even with those corrections, the outcomes do not change (I have adjusted all link counts and alliance stats below to match the final counts). So it’s official: congratulations to Ripe Bananas and dangerous liberty — and to the Liberal Coalition!
