    The Ballot is voted by judges based on iris they have seen growing in gardens 
for at least 2 years.  You need to have seen it often enough to determine what/how 
it does in a variety of conditions. 
    The Symposium is voted on by every member of the AIS and is determined by 
what you like.  This makes it more of a popularity contest but a popular iris should 
be one that does well (why else why you like it?).  So, this should be a good list of 
garden iris for a person to choose from, especially if they went by the results in 
their region.
