It’s time to vote! The 2015 Coast Weekend Readers’ Choice Awards are here.
This region-wide event is meant to uncover which businesses, restaurants and activities are the best in the Columbia-Pacific region — as chosen by you, Coast Weekend readers and the public.
One lucky, randomly drawn voter will win a $50 gift card.
What’s your favorite grocery store? Art gallery? Salon? Favorite music venue or farmers market? Do you have a favorite coffee place or lunch spot? Best pizza? Happy hour? Who serves the best clam chowder? We want to know what you consider the best.
Voting is open from Nov. 18 to Dec. 19. If you want, you can fill out a voting ballot in print; just pick up a Coast Weekend, Seaside Signal, Cannon Beach Gazette or Coast Marketplace during the voting period.
Or, vote online. Online we provide a seeded ballot based on winners, runners-up and other top votes from past years. The utmost care was taken to craft this ballot. If you don’t see your favorite business, restaurant or activity seeded, simply write in your own choice and we can add it to the ballot for you. Nominees can come from anywhere in Clatsop, Pacific and north Tillamook counties.
If you have questions or concerns, feel free to let us know by filling out the comments section online or emailing email@example.com
We take care to ensure that each person can only fill out a ballot once by verifying emails, cross-referencing names and addresses and more. This isn’t a contest where someone can stuff the ballot box — so make sure your vote counts!
Once voting closes at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19, we’ll tabulate the votes. First place, second place and runners-up will be revealed in the Jan. 28 Coast Weekend. We’re going to make that issue bigger and better than ever, with stories on the winners and more. It will be a Coast Weekend you can save and refer back to throughout the year.
