RTMFCNY badgeNow is the time to cast your votes for your favorite maker projects competing on the Road to Maker Faire Challenge.

Sixty-six makers have entered and are now competing for your support. Votes will be counted until 11:59pm PT on Tuesday, August 13th. You can vote once per project every 24 hours, and you can vote for as many projects in that period as you wish.
