The Best of Madison Readers’ Poll is an annual survey asking local readers and consumers to vote for their favorite food and drink, retail services and people.  

Please note that our voting format has changed. When you reach the end of the ballot, you will NOT see an option to submit the entire ballot. Instead, each vote is saved individually when you select the vote button.  

To expand each category to see the vote buttons, click the expand arrows to the right of the category name. 

You are allowed one vote per category per day from September 19-October 31.
