While this may be the last of our nominees, the voting doesn’t end today. Voting will stay open until January 10, 2011 with the top three videos announced on the Compass January 11.

Follow any (or all) of the following ways to cast your vote:

1. Choose to “like” your favorite video on our YouTube 2010 Video of the Year playlist.
2. Choose to “like” your favorite video on our Facebook fan page.
3. Leave a positive comment on the Compass blog post for that video.

*Please note, YouTube and Facebook will require you to sign in using your personal account to vote

Each method will be weighted equally, worth 1/3 of the total vote. Although you can vote for multiple videos, keep in mind you can only “like” the video once on YouTube and Facebook so you might want to save your vote for your favorite.

Check back on 1/11/11 to find out who you selected as the top three videos of 2010!
