Welcome to Best of Lawrence 2014
Thank-you for voting in Best of Lawrence 2014!
VOTING IS NOW CLOSED. Winners will be announced in the "BEST OF LAWRENCE" magazine, published in June.
This friendly competition honors the very BEST things about our community: where we work, play, shop and live. It's up to you
, the voter, to recognize the stuff that makes Lawrence great!
How do I vote?
You need to create a Username and Password for this ballot. This is different than your Lawrence.com or LJWorld.com username.
On the ballot, make your "Best of" selection for each question. If you don't see who you want to vote for on the list, or if there is no list to choose from, simply "write-in" your answer in the space provided.
Do you guys have a hashtag on Twitter?
Yes, it's #bestoflawrence. If it catches on, #BOL is good too.
When are the results released?
Voting ends April 11th. After that, the results will be published in the "Best of Lawrence" magazine and winners will be honored at a special ceremony June 12th.
How long does the survey take?
The survey features 117 popular topics and should take about 30 minutes to complete. You don't have to fill out all at once, you can answer some of the questions then come back and complete the rest. You don't have to answer all the questions, just those you have an opinion about.
I have a business and want to encourage people to vote for me. Do you have any materials I can use for that?
Yes. We have posters, business cards and other stuff to help. Contact Colleen Brady at email@example.com for info.
Be honest, does it really matter who I vote for? Isn't it just places that advertise with you that win anyway?
The voting is fair and unbiased. Your vote matters! Last year, over 7,500 people voted and several races were closely contested, some separated by only 5-6 votes. The results for Best of Lawrence are based entirely on what you, the voter, select as the winners and we monitor the voting closely. That's why we ask you for a separate username and password for the ballot.
