Top Illinois Marching Band Voting

Recommended Posts

PRELIMINARY BALLOT; https://forms.gle/zB12cVCysVCQSd5r9

First let's talk about the scoring system I will use. In order to be included in this poll, a band must have received a 65.00 or above at ISU, U of I, or BOA Super Regional, or have participated in finals (regardless of finals score) at either ISU or BOA in the year 2019. In Case of U of I a band must have earned a 65+ in Large school and a 70+ in small schools. A band could also qualify if they are in the top 5 in finals at Downers Grove South marching competition or top 5 in finals at the Lake Park Marching Competition. If a band is in the top 5 twice at either of those two competitions the next band in line does not qualify to be included in this poll.

Up to 54 bands will be selected for preliminary voting

27 Bands will qualify for semi-final voting

and just 10 bands will qualify for finals voting and the placement of those 10 bands in that voting session will be the placement of our voted top 10 bands in Illinois.

I'm kinda surprised that Belleville East isn't on this list since they beat out Granity City and Collinsville at BOA St.Louis in 2019.

You’re correct they did. I just noticed. It’s human error and I may include them in semi-finals because I didn’t notice them here.
