World Mayor 2012
Every vote counts
Voting is now taking place for the winner of the 2012 World Mayor Prize and the runner-ups. You are now invited to vote, from the list of finalists below, for the mayor you believe most worthy of the Prize and comment on his or her achievements but also, if you wish, on his or her shortcomings. Please describe, preferably in English, why the mayor you voted for deserves to win the World Mayor Prize.
Finalists from: North America | Latin America | Europe | Asia | Australasia | Africa |
The City Mayors board of fellows will choose the winner and two runner-ups based on the number of votes received and the strength and passion of supporting comments. The organisers believe that the persuasiveness of argument is as important as the number of votes. This ensures that a good mayor from a smaller city can compete on equal terms with a mayor from a large metropolis. All 25 shortlisted mayors will be asked to agree to to the City Mayors' Code of Ethics.
