International phone voting has been enabled for each of the 28 Finalists in the New7Wonders Cities campaign. “From today, anyone with a phone — mobile or landline — anywhere in the world, can call one of our dedicated phone lines and vote for their one chosen city,” said Jean-Paul de la Fuente, Director of New7Wonders.
“Each vote cast using the international telephone voting lines counts as one vote for the chosen Finalist, just the same as each vote cast online at new7wonders.com and via the iPhone and Android applications”, he added.
How does it work? “It’s simple and takes less than a minute,” said de la Fuente. “Just call one of the international voting numbers, listen to the short message, put in the code for your Finalist City and that’s it. You’ve voted!”
The international phone numbers are:
And the codes for each of the 28 cities (in alphabetical order) are:

12 Kuala Lumpur
14 La Paz
17 Mexico City
20 Phnom Penh
24 St. Petersburg
Please see the International phone voting page for full details.
New7Wonders Cities is the third global vote organized by New7Wonders and follows the successful New7Wonders of the World and New7Wonders of Nature campaigns. “New7Wonders Cities will be a forum for discussing everything from urban planning to metropolitan governance, from tourism to architecture,” said Bernard Weber, Founder-President of New7Wonders, launching the campaign in 2012. The Official New7Wonders Cities will be revealed on 7 December this year.
