It's that time again! Welcome to the 17th annual Best of Cincinnati® readers choice poll, where your votes determine the area's best restaurants, bars, arts organizations, retail stores, services, parks, media personalities, sports teams, politicians, causes and urban experiences. (There’s so much great stuff in Cincinnati it takes a long time to debate all of it.)
The ballot is organized into six major sections: Eats, Shops & Services, Arts & Nightlife, Public Eye, Jocks and Urban Life. Here are the basic rules: You don't have to vote in every individual category, but only one ballot per email address will be counted and you must vote in at least 25 categories for your vote to count. To get started with your pickins, click here.
The current choices available are the top winners from last year (except in new categories or those based on openings or happenings during the past year), but readers may write in nominations for any category. Write-ins won't be immediately added to the pull-down menus, but we will add any that garner a significant number of votes. Regardless, all write-in votes count toward determining the category winners.
Thank you in advance for taking part in the 2013 Best of Cincinnati® readers poll. Voting ends Sunday, Feb. 17. Look for the results in our 17th annual Best of Cincinnati® issue on Wednesday, March 27.
If, for some crazy reason, you find an error or glitch on the ballot, email the details to [email protected] and we'll get to it as quickly as we can.
