Palo Alto Weekly "Best Of" 2015 Ballot

How to Vote
• Vote for at least 5 categories
• Submit your ballot by May 31, 2015.
• Confirm your vote via e-mail (To discourage ballot stuffing, your ballot will not be counted until you activate it by responding to a confirmation e-mail that will automatically be sent to you).
• Only one ballot per person is allowed.

Hall of Fame
In several ballot categories, you will notice that a business is listed as a Hall of Fame winner and cannot be voted for. These are businesses that have won the category five or more consecutive years and receive the Hall of Fame award. They do not compete for three years after Hall of Fame status is established.

Write-in Voting
If your favorite is not on the ballot, please write in your choice. After enough write-ins, the business will be added to the pull-down.

Business Owners
If your location is not listed in a category which you believe it should be listed in, please send an email to Palo Alto Weekly Best Of, with your business name, location and the subcategory you wish to be added to. The Best Of Committee will review the request.

Get your business ready!
