Artvoice Best of Buffalo 2015 Poll

Here we go again, dear readers: The Artvoice Best of Buffalo polling has begun.

Here’s how it works: You vote online at Because we are populist democrats, we don’t offer you a limited range of choices in each category; we don’t edit your votes; we don’t put our thumbs on the scales in any manner. It’s all up to you. Business owners, you need the distinction of being voted Buffalo's Best. Do anything you need to do to get people to vote for you.

There are some rules:

For your ballot to count, you must respond in at least 25 categories.

No ballot stuffing: One ballot per person. We’re very good at discerning chicanery: Egregious offenders may be named and ridiculed in print.

Vote local: This is Best of Buffalo, not Best of Anywhere. No national chains.

You can answer some categories and return later to fill out more or to change your earlier responses; if you’ve filled out 25 or more by April 14, we’ll count it. We’ll announce the top five finalists in the May 7th edition of Artvoice paper, and the winners will be revealed at our annual Artvoice Best of Buffalo Party on Monday, May 18 at the Town Ballroom. May the Best of Buffalo win!
