Last Chance to Vote

Densey and Mary have a 5,000 vote lead, but that's down from almost 9,000 last week. The push is on and there are only two days left. If you haven't voted already, if you haven't told all your friends, relatives and social networking strangers, if you have a spare e-mail address collecting dust, now is the time to get it done.

NBC did a nice piece on the Coles and hopefully it will sustain the momentum that's been propelling this event since February.

Go HERE and vote today.

UPDATE: We have been watching the votes for the last 20 minutes and the second-place contestants are getting around 5 votes every 30 seconds or so. If you haven't voted yet, go to the link above and vote. Tell your friends. Tell your family. There is about a 2000-vote difference right now.

Post updated to move to top of the blog.

Most email accounts let you add several addresses for family members. Now might be a good time to max out the four or five you can add to your accounts, then register a vote from each of them.

Uh, I mean, so every member of your family can vote. Including Fido.

I took a quick look through the Superintendent's blog and wasn't able to find ANY mention of this vote for Densey Cole anywhere. Am I wrong?

Just curious, but why wouldn't Blog 501 jump in and support something like this?

Is the man THAT IGNORANT & CLUELESS that he couldn't see the positive message this would create for the troops? (though it's way too late for that).

The Department should have been all over this in support of Densey Cole from day one. Instead, this Superintendent just magnifies how REALLY detached and uncaring he is towards the Police family.

I guess maybe thats because he's NOT the Police, never has been the Police and never will be the Police! He's nothing but big a pretender!

Hopefully the plug that David Letterman gave out on the air last night for another couple doesn't hurt their chances.

I hope he wins but the vote only accounts for 20% of there chance for the grand prize. The top ten vote getters get the same amount of points. The other 80% of the contest is totally subjective on Crate & Barrels part...

I hope Mary & Densey win....I could'nt imagine a more deserving couple. I worked with Densey (not partners) in 009 years ago! A good guy!!! Best of Luck!!! And Prayers! O/T....God Bless the Homewood Firefighter that died in the fire & prayers to his family. Prayers to the female firefighter that was injured. And prayers to the elderly man that lost his life & his family. God bless all of our Police Officers & Firefighters who go to work everyday to save others. A Sister in Blue.

If you can't find your link look in your SPAM box. I just tried to vote and the link was in my spam box...all you have to do is open your spam and click on the link- the sender wont be listed as crate and barrel either... it says "noreply@strutta.com"

VOTE! The 2nd place couple has a bunch of votes coming in that were clearly saved for the last 30min of this contest!

Densey lost a comfy 10,000 vote lead due to the 2nd place couple being on every site, radio station, and whatever.......This will be a disgrace if we didnt show up for them when they needed us most.......VOTE PEOPLE... Social network in the last hour... Type your fingers off!!!

I hope with all my heart & soul that Densey wins this because I know him so well & this isn't about trips & gifts. Its giving him something to occupy his time & make him feel good about himself. All his life he has been a giver & a nurturer, thats what made him so special to me. Remember what I always told you, "Densey YOU ARE SOMEBODY & ALWAYS WILL BE." God bless you always & in all ways. Love you forever Bear!

They got the most votes but could still lose. Here’e the fine print:

JUDGING TO SELECT PRIZE WINNERS: Representatives chosen by Sponsor (the “Judges”) will select all prize winners from the 50 Finalists. The decisions of the Judges are final and binding on all matters relating to the selection of winners. The final judging will take place in or about mid-April 2010. The Finalists will be judged on the following criteria in the Judges’ sole and unfettered discretion:

• Originality and creativity of Entrant’s responses to the topics (50%);

• How well Entry invokes and inspires Crate and Barrel’s lifestyle (30%);

• Entry’s Ranking in public voting (20%) as follows: 1st–10th place in public voting will receive 10 points; 10th–20th place will receive 6 points; 20th–30th place will receive 4 points; and the remaining 20 Finalists will receive 0 points.

Each Entry will be given a score by the Judges based on the above. The Entry with the highest score will be deemed the Grand Prize Winner; the Entries with the next-highest scores (2nd–18th places) will be deemed the Second and Third Prize winners and the Honorable Mention Prize winners, in order of highest to lowest scores. In the event of a tie, the Entry with the highest score in first bullet point above (originality and creativity) will be deemed the winner from among the tying Entries with the highest total score

i just registered and voted. i also saw their gift registry for the wedding. im thinking about picking up an item for them, something not too expensive. i think we all could help out a bit, even if it's a glass or napkins or whatever else they have on there.

Mary and Densey got the most votes...Just checked it. I really hope Crate and Barrel does the right thing and chooses them as the winners. My skeptical copper attitude however, leads me to think they will not.....I hope I am wrong. They deserve it so much!!

If Densey and his wife don't win.We should consider a country wide boycott of Crate and Barrel.

One hurtle down many more left. Good luck. Seems like a no brainer, but #2 might be more of what crate and barrel is looking 4.

If this doesn't work for Densey and Mary (they lose for other reasons except votes) then you better believe that I will NEVER shop at Crate & Barrel again!!!!!!

If the Coles don't get the Grand Prize Wedding after having obtained the most votes, I won't shop there again.


Crate and Barrel should consider one important matter about offending law enforcement personnel, they're all employed and have a steady income. No small feat in this economy.

I voted, and bought them something from the registry....how nice would it be for them to get their wish list fulfilled??? Buy them a candle or two....it's the least we can do.
