Today is Round Two of the Jalopnik Forza Motorsport 3 Downloadable Car Pack vote. Democracy, meet glorious hoonage and the art of commenter dissent. Voting ends tomorrow — now's your chance! Golden Tickets and semifinals below!
This is poll number seven, the first poll to include the Commenter Golden Ticket, and the first poll of the semifinals. There will be two more polls like this today, and the winners will be combined into one end-all Monster Poll tomorrow. The basic instructions can be found below. If you just want to get down to business and vote, jump to the bottom of the page.
Here's how this works:
1. If you want a specific car to win, you need to get others to vote for it. We won't be pushing the poll anywhere else but here. If you want your car to win, find people to vote for it yourself, OK?
2. Voting will take place Monday, January 25th through Thursday, January 28th. The results, along with an extra car chosen by the Jalopnik staff, will be revealed on Friday, January 29th. The car pack itself will be released this summer.
3. In order to provide the greatest possible choice, we began with a list of 120 vehicles. For logistical reasons, it was broken down into twelve groups of ten cars each. Voting takes place in a tournament-like stagger: Monday and Tuesday consisted of three twenty-car votes, with each vote paring twenty cars down to ten. The winners from those polls are in today's semifinals, and today's winners will hit the final vote tomorrow. Each poll closes at midnight on the day of the vote.
4. If you skipped down to the bottom and were too lazy/distracted/caffienated to read any of the above, this is all you need to know: Today is the penultimate day of polling. The five Commenter Golden Ticket cars in each poll have been yanked back from the fiery depths and given a second chance. Go to the poll below. Pick ten cars. On Friday, we'll do the math and tell you what's what, ending with a list of fifteen cars.

Probably. There are ten empty cans of Coke on my desk and I haven't been outside since Sunday. Is that a bad thing? Probably.
