UPDATE: The nomination process has ended. We'll open up voting on July 23. Stay tuned!
STORY: Patch is relaunching its Readers’ Choice program and we’re asking you, your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers to nominate the best spots in Davis. Don't miss this chance to share your love for your favorite local businesses and organizations.
Here's how it works:
We’ll accept your nominations in a number of categories through July 9. Starting July 23, you'll have a few weeks to vote (and tell all your friends to vote) for the best of the best. Winners will be announced in August and will receive an official Patch certificate and townwide bragging rights.
Here are the 24 categories. Add nominations to each by clicking the link and commenting!
Click here to sign up for the Davis Patch newsletter and receive updates on the contest. And don’t forget to tell your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
NOTE: As you probably know, other publications like the Davis Enterprise and the LA Times conduct similar Readers' Choice polls each year. Tons of websites do it. Still, we're interested in finding out what Davis Patch readers love about this town, and we know it will be fun to watch the votes pile up in real-time when we launch the polls in a few weeks. Stay tuned!
How is this different from ?
We're running all the categories at once to give you more time to vote and spread the word. We've also made a few other improvements—like requiring registration to vote, which will improve the fairness and accuracy of polls.
My business already won a Readers' Choice poll. What does this mean for us?
Congratulations! Our reigning winners are still the champs in their categories, and we won't be repeating polls in any categories where we've already given awards this year. If your business won a Readers' Choice poll and you haven't yet received your certificate, someone from Davis Patch will be contacting you shortly to schedule delivery.
