      MaxRo steeliteusa callmeyokoono We have it set to track based on IP address so that people don’t vote multiple times for the same chef. The IP tracking has been removed and is not only using cookies. So, you can vote from different browsers or different computers on the same network. Try it again and see if you can vote!
