Information

Welcome to the Coachella Valley Independent’s fourth annual Best of Coachella Valley!

Here are the finalists in each category, as chosen by our readers in first-round voting. This round consists of multiple-choice voting. The voting is up to our readers, and our readers alone—there are no pre-determined “finalists” or candidates.

• This Final Round of voting will take place through Monday, Oct. 30.

• The winners and other results will be announced at CVIndependent.com on Monday, Nov. 27, and in the special Best of Coachella Valley section in the Independent’s December 2017 print edition.

Rules:

• Only one vote per person, per round, please! We’re watching IP addresses, so be honest.

• Ballots without a full name AND a working email address will be thrown out and not counted. By voting in this poll, you agree to be signed up for the Independent's weekly e-Edition email. You can unsubscribe at any time. We'll be watching the newsletter for email bounces, and any ballots associated with non-working email addresses will NOT be counted.

• Each person must vote in AT LEAST 20 categories for the ballot to be counted. Don’t have an opinion on at least 20 categories? Get out more!

• Stuffing the ballot box is a no-no. Interested parties can engage in simple campaigning—like putting up signs, linking to the ballot or using social media to encourage fans/customers to vote—but anything beyond simple campaigning is a no-no. Any businesses, groups or individuals suspected of stuffing the ballot box may be disqualified, at the discretion of the Independent publisher.

• If you have questions, call 760-904-4208, or email jboegle@cvindependent.com.
