Residents can visit the website, www.jaimetontalent.ma/, and vote for Romack’s entry in the photography category. She is pictured in a photo with a man proposing to her with a box of chicken nuggets. After residents click on her photo, they must enter an e-mail address on the left side of the form and fill out the information on the right: name, phone, e-mail, address, password, etc. After they receive a confirmation e-mail, participants must put their e-mail and password into the upper left-hand corner of the web page, choose the photo and click “vote.”
