Rounds judged: 13
Approach: Resolution of substantive issues is more important than communication skills
I vote on whatever voters debaters give me. I enjoy some theory debate and policy-style arguments; however, I do like a good debate on the framework and like for arguments to link back to the standard. I usually vote for the debater that does the best weighing analysis in the round. I like for debaters to not only list voters, but tell me which voting issues are most (and least) important.
