Voting for Best Of WNC 2015 ends at midnight tonight

Hear ye; hear ye!

Residents, visitors and the noblemen and women of Western North Carolina: Today, Tuesday, May 5, is the final day to cast votes in the 2015 Best of WNC poll, naming the kings and queens of the annual Mountain Xpress Best Of Awards.

Once the votes are tallied, Xpress will crown the winners, the rulers of the categories. From new picks like “best doughnuts,” “best homebrewer” and “best cheap thrill” to old favorites like “best bookstore,” “best hiking trail” and “best local painter,” your vote counts, as the winners will reign over the WNC scene for all of 2015 (and into 2016!).

The voting ends at midnight tonight — but don’t fret! You still have time!

Have an awesome dinner last night? A great breakfast this morning? Contemplating the best spot to down some margaritas later? Let the kingdom in on your favorites — your favorite bike shop, your favorite tattoo artist, your favorite dog park, your favorite cheeseburger.

In order for your ballot to be counted, you must vote in at least 30 categories. And if you’re one of those people who occasionally forgets to hit “submit” on forms, check your ballot! The difference between first and second place could be your vote.
