Best of Missoula 2013

Survey ended May 8 at 11:59 PM.

Life consists of millions of tiny choices that determine who you are, how you live and for what you will be remembered. Some of these decisions are easy, others sorta hard and daunting and the type that leave you paralyzed at the thought of what could happen if you make one choice over another.

Let’s keep this on the easy side of things. What if we told you that you could answer a bunch of questions that you already know the answers to—and your answers could help fuel Missoula’s biggest celebration of the year? Sound good?

Well, luck would have it that we have a Best of Missoula ballot right here. All we’re looking for is your opinion about what makes our city so great. Easy, right?

All of your focus and dedication comes with a reward, of course. The Independent’s annual Best of Missoula Party at Caras Park takes place Thursday, July 11, and we’d like you to join us. There’ll be live music, food and drinks as we toast your votes and honor this year’s winners.

Okay, now get to the ballot. Filling it out will be the best decision you make all day.

The rules are pretty straightforward:
• Be sure to complete AT LEAST 40 CATEGORIES; otherwise your ballot will be mocked, ridiculed and not counted. Likewise, if you do not provide us with your name, email and phone number, your votes will not be
counted. (We promise not to use the info for evil-doing!)
• Don't go all crazy on us—ONE BALLOT per user! Ballot stuffing is bad...very bad. And getting caught doing so will get your ballot disqualified.
• If you have questions or experience any technical difficulties while completing your ballot, please email
• Encourage your friends, family, and complete strangers to vote! Ok, so that’s not actually a rule but we do appreciate your help spreading the word.
