(The information on this page assumes you’ve read the previous information pages.)
There are two types of votes that occur during each 24-hour “save me” period.
The first vote is to decide which tribute will get an extra attribute point added to their score. All tributes participate in this vote, and voters can vote for as many tributes as they want; no need to pick just one favorite.
Whoever wins this vote gets a point added to their lowest attribute.
Tributes can have a max of 7 attribute points per attribute. If a tribute with fully maxed out attribute points (not including attribute points from alliances) wins the vote, then nothing happens.
The second vote is to decide which tribute will get an item to save themselves from danger. Only tributes in danger will be included in this vote, and voters may vote for as many of the tributes as they want.
MYTH: The person who gets the most votes in either poll wins that poll.
FACT: The person who gets the most votes in either poll has the highest chance of winning that poll.
Once a poll is complete, I count up however many votes each person got, and put that number into a random generator. It will select a winner for me. Think of it as having your name in a hat 300 times if you got 300 votes, along with a bunch of other names from other people that got votes. One name gets picked out of the hat, and that person wins.
