Based on thousands of early votes, nominees in the 2015 Best of the Best, People’s Choice Awards ranked with the most votes have advanced into the final stage of voting which takes place during December.
Only registered members can vote, and because the voting site (bestoflakechapala.com) underwent a complete format revision recently, individuals who wish to vote may need to register or re-register, if they have not already done so.
All tallies have been re-set to zero, so that the December push for the finalists will begin on equal footing. Based on the results of last year’s competition, the voting during December is expected to be fast and furious, with the leading contenders in many categories changing positions frequently. Area businesses and service providers in the finals can roust votes by urging on their fans via social media sites and through other inventive campaigns.
The winners in more than 80 categories will be announced in January 2016. Winners are entitled to use the award emblem in all print or web publicity, plus they will receive a certificate suitable for framing.
This is the third People’s Choice survey conducted by sponsors, ImagenMX, and the second year that voting has taken place online. The objective of course, is to recognize and support the area’s best merchants and businesspeople, as chosen by popular vote.
