If I have a video in the contest, do my votes go back to zero at the end of each week during the general contest voting period (Feb. 25 - Mar. 23)?

They sure don’t – you keep your votes for the duration of the complete general voting period! We’ve had families submit videos in the last week of the general voting period and become finalists so uploading early doesn’t necessarily give you an advantage – it’s all about rocking the vote!
