Oh boy! If voting for the Top 5 in Best of Loudoun—the Loudoun Times-Mirror’s readers’ choice awards contest—was any indication, we could have some very tough competition when those Top 5 are announced March 12 and the final voting round opens to pare them down to the winner and two finalists in each of 180 categories.
With nearly 37,500 people casting about 265,000 votes in January for 2,400-plus nominees, there were many close races. Although we’ll announce the Top 5 in random order, we can tell you that:
Loudouners have strong opinions about which business whips up the Best Dessert, as only four votes separated the top vote-getter in the Top 5 round from the bakery that came in second.
They’re pretty loyal to their mixologists, too. The difference between the top contender for Best Bartender and the one in second? Five votes.
In the Best Family Dining restaurant category, only seven votes separated the top two, and 16 votes separated the catering company in first from the one in second.
All this could change in the end, as we’ll wipe the vote counts clean and start fresh when we open the final voting round March 12 – 26 at LoudounTimes.com/Best, but is does go to show that every vote counts.
So, while anyone in the Top 5 could be the winner or a finalist in their category, that's why it’s important to get the word out to all your customers, clients, family friends and neighbors to cast their ballot once a day during the final voting round.
We’ll remind you again when final voting opens, but why not bookmark the voting page and set a calendar reminder to begin casting your ballots for the winners once a day March 12 – 26 at LoudounTimes.com/Best?
We’ll announce the winners and finalists May 7 online and in a special publication in the Loudoun Times-Mirror.
