We're so sorry, but voting is over! It had to be done at some point, but there's always next year. We're going to take all the suggestions you gave us this year and try to implement them then. If you have any ideas for categories we should include or ways the survey could be easier/more fun, feel free to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As for this year, you can find out the finalists by tuning into our Facebook the week of May 18-22 for Best of the West Week Live!
Then, winners will be announced in our August issue focusing almost entirely on Best of the West winners, along with analysis of the results and Staff Picks.
