Name your favorites! in City Pages’ annual Best of survey

• Give yourself at least 20 minutes, as answers will NOT save if you exit.

• Legitimately answer at least 25 questions —that’s how we weed out ballot stuffers. This survey is a sincere questionnaire about the locals’ favorites! Sure, vote for your cousin’s restaurant, but it counts only if you fully participate.

• No vote stuffing or shenanigans! One ballot per person. A valid phone number and/or email address are required, and we check. Suspicious ballots are tossed out for unverifiable/bogus info, obvious cheating, etc.
No multiple ballot drop-off/submission (mail, delivery or online)—for example, a business collecting surveys from customers. Ballots generally should be submitted by the person who completes it.

• Your info and answers are confidential, seen only by our staff tabulators. Your name, etc. is for verification and internal uses only.
