Readers' Choice: Time to vote for your favorites

Balloting starts this week on

Almanac readers are a discerning lot, and that's why we turn to their expertise every summer as we search for their favorites shops, services and restaurants.

From contractors to Chinese food, dry cleaners to dentists, we're asking you to single out your favorite places to eat, shop, buy services and have fun.

Easy online voting starts at noon Tuesday, May 24.

Visit to access the online ballot.

New this year is a ballot for mobile devices that can be accessed by scanning the QR code in the Readers' Choice ad on Page 11.

Vote for at least five categories by July 3. Be sure to activate your ballot by responding to a confirmation email, and you will be entered into a prize drawing. Prize winners will be contacted via email after voting ends July 3.

If you can't find your favorites in the drop-down menus, submit them as write-in votes. Write-in votes help new businesses qualify for next year's ballot.
