Hey there, reader! It’s okay to stop looking, you’ve found it.
Yep, it’s the Indy’s annual Best of Missoula reader's poll and we’re really glad you’re here. Relieved, in fact, because this thing relies entirely on you and your vote!
No, really. Every year we ask readers to fill out a ballot and every year you bombard us with your favorite bartender, bookstore, band, bike shop and more. It's pretty exciting. It also makes for a great community celebration.
Wait, did someone say celebration? You bet. Not only do you get to help choose the winners, your ballot ensures an invitation to the Independent’s Best of Missoula Party at Caras Park on Thursday, July 6. There’ll be live music from local bands, food, drinks and special activities for the whole family. It’s pretty much the biggest thing happening this summer, or so we’ve heard. Oh, and did we mention it's free?
But first things first: Fill out your ballot and help tell us who and what is the Best of Missoula.
The rules are pretty straightforward:
• Be sure to complete AT LEAST 30 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 email@example.com
• Encourage your friends, family, and complete strangers to vote! Okay, so that’s not actually a rule but we do appreciate your help spreading the word. Cheers!
This survey consists of 183 questions. You must answer at least 30 questions in order for your answers to be counted.
