The process began with a nomination period. From Jan. 15-31, local businesses were nominated for People’s Choice awards in more than 130 categories.
The top 10 nominated businesses in each category advanced to the voting phase, which runs through Feb. 28. You can vote once per day.
People’s Choice awards are broken down into four divisions: Food & Drink, Entertainment, Shopping and Services.
Food & Drink includes categories such as best appetizers, BBQ, chicken, chili dog, burger, pizza, asian food and much more.
Entertainment options include best beer tent, best bar to watch a game, best festival, best golf course and more.
In Shopping, you can vote for your favorite dry cleaners, consignment/resale store, floral shop, apparel store and more.
The Services division features everything from health, beauty and fitness to auto, pets and home services.
