CityBeat's 26th annual Best of Cincinnati® Readers Poll is live.
Cast your vote at vote.citybeat.com.
Your votes will determine the area's best Eats, Shops & Services, Music & Nightlife, Arts & Culture, Sports & Recreation and City Life. Here are the basic rules: You don't have to vote in every individual category, but you must vote in at least 20 for your ballot to count. Voting will run through midnight on Feb. 13. You can vote once per day.
Voting is simple. Start your ballot selecting "Start voting now" from the main landing page or from any specific section or category. You will then be prompted to register. Enter a valid email address to begin the process.
The ballot is pre-populated with top vote-getters from last year, but we accept write-in votes in every category. New categories or categories that change each year (Best Museum Exhibit, for example) will not be pre-populated. Write-ins won't be immediately added to the options, but we will add any that garner a significant number of votes. Regardless, all write-in votes are recorded and count toward determining the category winners.
You can vote in each category, but it is not required. You can click on the "skip" button to skip a category, or the up/down arrows in the bottom right corner to move to another category. If you want to exit back to the main Eats, Shops & Services, Music & Nightlife, Arts & Culture, Sports & Recreation or City Life section, click the name in the top left corner.
