Rick, exactly as you described it. Little slips of paper
(ballots) are given to the judges, they write down their preference, and
the show chairperson reads the results. It has been a long time since
I saw the queen elected by a show of hands, and I agree that such a
procedure is intimidating.
Our peak was reached ten days ago, and we are legally in Zone 7
but 8 is about ten miles away and that is the reason I always say 7/8.
