READERS HAVE SPOKEN. VOTES TALLIED. WINNERS DECLARED. We ask our readers to identify their favorite and best business in their community. They vote by either a paper ballot by mail or by using the electronic poll posted on the website starlocalnews.com. The voting is intense. The competition is stiff. Thousands of votes are cast. Once all of the ballots for each community are received and the voting closed, our staff tabulates the votes for each category. The entire process from creating the ballot, building the online poll, to declaring the winner can take up to 10 weeks to complete.

Finally, after an additional verification of the results by another team of people, the winners are declared and notified. The result – a list of our readers’ “Best” in the community. They were chosen by you, the reader. In this edition, you will find a roster of “the Best” businesses and service providers or public servants in your community.
