Disclosing Ballots and Records

The tabroom will release all decisions, records, and ballots after the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounds.

Errors may be corrected. For example, if the ballot states "I vote Pro" in the RFD but the judge awarded the Con team the victory.

Matters of interpretation will not be considered. For example, if a judge writes that a debater dropped an argument, but the debater feels that they answered it. We will not be relitigating rounds. Judges' decisions are final.
