    What's the "verify code" to vote for the football rivalry?
    Lauren Costa (Editor) December 03, 2013 at 10:23 AM
    Hi Joe, that's typically called a "Captcha", (an acronym for "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart"). It's just a type a way of making sure you're not a computer programmed to rack up votes in the contest. Simply retype the group of letters or numbers to prove you aren't a robot! :)
