Best Of 2018


Welcome to the "Best Of" Coastal Virginia!

Nominations run from January 1 through January 31, 2018.  Final Voting Runs February 3, 2018 and runs through March 30, 2018.

How the Process Works:

  • Within each category, you'll see a drop down menu of options to vote for; select your choices.
  • If you don't see the business or individual you would like to vote for, write in the name as a nomination; this will then add them to the list of those available to receive votes (your nomination will also count as a VOTE for them).
  • A Few Guidelines:
    • One ballot per person (e-mail address), per day please.
    • Nominees MUST be in the CORRECT Category in order to be counted.
    • Vote for as many or as few categories as you would like, as our new ballot allows you to navigate through different pages seamslessly.
    • You MUST submit your name and e-mail address with entry to validate your ballot.
    • Once the initial voting period ends on January 31, 20178  results are added up and double-checked for fraudulent voting or obvious abuse (those votes are then removed).
    • The finalist round will consist of business receiving top level votes received in their respective categories. These businesses will move into the finalist round for additional voting that runs from February 3 through  March 31, 2018.   Our contest winners will be those receiving the most votes overall for the entire duration of the contest.
    • Any and all Coastal Virginia businesses and individuals can be featured in our “drop-down menu.” If your choice is not listed in our drop-down menu, simply "write in" your selection in the space provided. This WILL count as a vote, and our drop-down menu will be updated within 48 hours to reflect the "write in" nomination. Please keep in mind that we receive thousands of write-ins daily and that write-ins will not immediately appear in the drop-down menu.

Nominations for the "Best Of" Coastal Virginia is a great way to support the places you frequent and the community individuals you love. In order to find out who is the best, we completely rely on you—our readers. So, vote away and spread the word!
