Zurich, Switzerland: With less than a week to go before the declaration of the New7Wonders Cities, postal voting for the “canon of 7” is gaining global momentum. “By giving people the chance to vote using postcards in these final days of the campaign, we are adding a traditional way of communicating to our range of high-tech voting options,” said New7Wonders Founder-President Bernard Weber, announcing the initiative last week.
