Everyone's a critic nowadays. We can't even post a negative review of Man of Steel without readers jumping down our throats to tell our film critic he's wrong.
Well, you opinionated people, now's your chance to really tell us how you feel. Yes, it's time again to cast your votes for our annual Best of Charlotte issue.
Just as we've done for the past 25 years — yes, 25 years! — we're asking readers to take the time to make their voices known on what they believe to be the most memorable people, places and things as they pertain to the Queen City.
Voting this year will be a little different. For one, we've killed our print ballot, thus saving you 46 cents on postage. (You're welcome.) We've also extended the voting season, giving you two weeks to cast your picks in each of the five sections. The final tallies will be counted when the ballot finally closes on Aug. 30 at midnight.
(The complete list of individual categories can be found here.)
The rules: Only one entry per person and approximately half of each section must be filled out for the ballot to count. Submissions by ballot stuffers (Come on, guys — everything's digital this year. It won't be hard to figure out who you are!) will be tossed.
COME PARTY WITH US: Experience Creative Loafing’s biggest party of the year! In honor of the 2013 Best of Charlotte and our 26th year serving the arts & entertainment community, we will celebrate in grand style on the evening of Wednesday, Oct. 2.
