Well I think we/you are going in the wrong direction, it seems to me you are fighting one against the other when you have the same goal at the end.
I saw the bids just a few days ago and am surprised you already voted, because the bids have both pros and cons.
I would consider instead to extend the deadline (remember we don't have a budget yet set) and try to find more arguments why the FUDCon should be in Panama or in Brazil. People should not vote just for winning a bit, they should vote having enough informations about the bids.
Organizing a FUDCon is not simple and you need a lot of people and a good strategy to be successful.
So please, before you fight within your region about valid or invalid votes, think about the final goal and extend your deadline a bit. If you like I'm sure jkurik can setup a voting session, although the Region's proposals to the Council never needed that.
My two cents.


I am originally from LATAM although I'm not living there anymore. This is always the same and this year only seemed to got worse.
I think the best is letting the Council to decide.  If ones are going to argue with others, most likely that voting again through a different method won't fix the problem.

My two cents,
