Torque Plugin Madness 2020 has officially kicked off, and for what is now the fifth year in a row, you can start casting your first votes in this annual contest between WordPress plugins. 

Much like the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament (March Madness), which kicks off later this month, Torque’s Plugin Madness is a bracket-style competition that begins with 64 plugins nominated by Torque readers, which are split into four groups: eCommerce, Maintenance, Optimization, and Marketing.  

Those plugins are then pitted against one another through a grueling set of matchups that culminate in a championship round, and ultimately, the thrill of victory for one remaining plugin.
