Who did I vote for? I don't know four out of the five candidates other than online and by reputation, so I read the candidate profiles on the PASS website and listened to Denny Cherry's (@mrdenny) "People Talking Tech" podcast with the five candidates.
After that research I still did what most people do - I chose to vote for the three persons that I have interacted with online and at SQL Saturdays, the three persons with whom I was most familiar.
I'm not here to stump for any particular candidate but for the process itself - get out and vote! It's a very easy online process to click on your personalized link in your email and then to select one to three candidates - do it!
