MLB All Star Voting: Usability flaw

Just voted for my Orioles All-Stars, 35 times.

Weird usability thing. They let you fill out one ballot and submit it 35 times. But you have to actually type in 35 separate validation keys.

Why?

It's not causing 35 separate page views with new advertising on each page. I could understand that.

Why not just let me pick the number of votes I want for this ballot the submit?


No, I don't care enough about the NL to vote on 3 outfielders ;)

And I can't in good conscience vote for Brian Roberts (Orioles 2B) who has played like 12 games in 3 years but somehow made the ballot.
