Artvoice Best of Buffalo 2014 Polls Are Now Open!




The Artvoice Best of Buffalo polling begins today.

Here’s how it works: You vote, either by US mail or online at Because we are populist democrats, we don’t offer you a limited range of choices in each category; we don’t edit your votes; we don’t put our thumbs on the scales in any manner. It’s all up to you. Business owners, you need one of our coveted plaques to hang in your shop. Do anything you need to do to get people to vote for you.

There are some rules:

FILL OUT THE WHOLE BALLOT: For your ballot to count, you must respond in at least 25 categories.

No ballot stuffing: One vote per person. We’re very good at discerning chicanery: Egregious offenders will be named and ridiculed in print.

Vote local: This is Best of Buffalo, not Best of Anywhere. No national chains.

Mail paper ballots to Best of Buffalo, Artvoice, 810 Main Street, Buffalo NY 14202. We must receive paper ballots by April 15. At, you can answer some categories and return later to fill out more or to change your earlier responses; if you’ve filled out 25 or more by April 15, we’ll count it. We’ll announce the top five finalists in the paper, and the winners will be revealed at our annual Artvoice Best of Buffalo Party. May the Best of Buffalo win!
