Daysign Poll

We’ve never had a ‘vote’ button on Mexicolore before so this is a first. We’re asking people to vote for their favourite Aztec daysign. We’re conducting a survey among schools we work in this coming year. Here is the online equivalent. Results TBA in 2016...!

Click the button for your favourite daysign. Before you hit the ‘Vote Now’ button at the bottom of the page please also fill in your name and tick the Captcha security box - sorry about this but we’re keen to avoid votes being made by robots!
