They have an English website so it’s easy to understand and you can follow it easily to make an account. You can make accounts with an email address, Facebook or Twitter to vote. The more accounts you make the more you can vote. It is recommended to use Twitter to sign up, since you can use random e-mails with the Twitter login, and save your real e-mails for the e-mail sign up. This way you have double the accounts with only half the e-mails.
