Heisman Sets Deadline, Threatens Voters Who Don’t Hide Ballots

The Heisman Trophy Trust has given voters who it says violated a “nondisclosure requirement” in 2012 until April 8 to commit to hiding their ballots in the future.

In a letter dated March 4, Heisman president William Dockery wrote: “We are distressed to have been made aware that your 2012 vote was revealed publicly prior to the December 8th announcement.” Dockery said it’s “against our policy” to release ballot selections prior to the official announcement on ESPN.

Multiple voters, including media members and former winners, discuss their ballot publicly before the voting deadline each year. StiffArmTrophy.com obtained at least portions of 205 ballots in projecting Johnny Manziel as the winner in 2012.
