AWARD WE FORGOT?

If you would like to suggest an award category (and a winner for it), simply log in -- as you must do to vote -- and click on the "Award We Forgot?" link which will appear in place of this text after you've logged in.

Yep, it's that time of year again — election season! But unlike some elections, our fifth annual Best of L.A. Readers Poll doesn't leave you stuck between a mere two options: lame and lamer. In fact, the slate of qualified candidates is endless!

This is your chance to fill the highest office of the land with the best and brightest of L.A. From your favorite restaurants to bartenders, shops to salons, theaters to street art, clubs to DJs, the winners of our Best of L.A. Readers Poll will restore your faith in democracy.

The polls will stay open through Wed., Aug. 31, and you can save and return to your ballot anytime before then. Unlike in years past, there's no nomination process this time around — no primaries, if you will. Instead, the winners of the popular vote will be declared victorious.

If only our presidential election were as sensible.

Not feeling motivated this election season? Well, we're not above buying your vote. When you cast your ballot, you'll be automatically entered to win a $500 American Express gift card. So go forth, vote and throw your hat in the ring for a chance to be a winner yourself!

The winners will be revealed in our Best of L.A. issue, on stands and online Oct. 6.
