How or where does one vote for a project in a contest? Answered

Of course I can see where to rate an instructable but I can't find where to vote for one - or do only the judges vote?

There will be an amount of time that there will be a button on the instructable you can use to vote. If you tell me which contest, I will give you the duration of the voting.

I did not get notified that my question had been answered - sorry for the delay - anyway, say the the pocket size contest, I have looked all around and can't find a "vote" button. Why is this so hard to find?

Oh now I understand, I had to read and re-read both your answers to understand (I am so right brained if there is no visual to go by I am lost) the voting can't begin until the entries are all in. Can you vote for more than one? I like a few of them, actually a lot of them.

When the contest is open, the instructables in it will bear a "vote" button at the top. Find the contest - check when the voting is open and look at entries on the competition page when it's time.

Oh, I just found it over on the right side of the contest page - it states when the voting is open. That is really crazy, so I have to write on my calender to go vote on say the 20th for July, oh wait, I understand, you can't vote until all the entries are in. Good idea. Thank you again. N

L. I didn't know my question had been answered so I am sorry for the delay, I still don't understand though, I went (have gone many times) to the contest site and opened the one I like and there is no place to vote. I have a Mac and sometimes wonder if this is the problem, for example I could not put yellow boxes in my instructable. Is the voting option only open for a short amount of time? How do you find out where it says WHEN the voting option is open? Thank you, N
