Voting starts now for our Summer of Best Of! Our Readers’ Poll was so big last year that we’re splitting it up into three distinct issues that will fill the Capital Region with Best Of vibes all summer long. We expect this move will give us more time to fully profile and celebrate each and every winner.
The first installment hits on July 25th with the Music & Arts issue. Winners of Goods & Services + People & Places hits on August 8th and the coup de gras lands on August 22 with Food & Drink.
What does that mean for you, the voter? You should vote as soon as possible!
We’ll be shutting down voting on sections the Monday before the corresponding issue. For example, if you want to vote in the Music & Arts category you must have your ballot in by midnight on Sunday, July 22.
Here is another caveat: voting will occur exclusively online this year. We’ll make sure to remind you to vote in our dead-tree editions but there will not be any physical ballots. So share this poll with your friends.
Yes, there are prizes! Dedicated voters who provide their email and fill out the entirety of the ballot will be eligible to win two tickets to see Modest Mouse at The Palace Theatre on Oct. 14. We’ll have an assortment of contests associated with our Readers’ Poll running on our Instagram and Twitter feeds @thealtweekly. Those prizes will include tickets to SPAC’s Jazz Fest, Courtney Barnett at MASS MoCA, and more.
Show your Capital Region Pride and vote!
