Miss Universe Bangladesh Shirin Akter Shela is currently in Atlanta, USA, competing in the final rounds of the Miss Universe 2019 competition. The finale of the 68th edition of the competition will be held on December 9, and it will be broadcast on Fox channel.
To ensure Shirin can reach the top 20, or the semifinals, of the Miss Universe competition, Bangladeshis will have to just visit the Miss Universe website, and click on Shirin's image on Global Vote page.
There is also the option of casting multiple votes for the contestants, and in order to do that one has to click on the gold star on the same image. This will give the option of purchasing vote packs through international credit card. For example, 150 votes can be purchased for €49.00. There are six voting packs ranging from three votes to 300 votes, which can be purchased through credit card.
The Global Vote for selecting the top 20 contestants of the competition began on Sunday, and it will end on Friday at 11:59 pm (Eastern Time). For Bangladeshis the deadline is December 7, 10:59am. Any votes after the deadline will not count. Needless to say, the more vote Shirin gets before the deadline, the higher the chance she will have for reaching the top 20.
Voting is open to anyone who is 14 or older according to Miss Universe website.
