Please make nominations in at least five categories; if we see signs of ballot-stuffing, we reserve the right to discard your entry. The end is coming — make your nominations now before it's too late.

Every nomination is automatically saved, but may be changed up until the close of the nomination process, at which time all saved nominations are submitted for counting.

Drought, earthquakes, mudslides, riots and endless freeway construction — Los Angeles never feels far from an apocalypse of one kind or another. So when the end times come, we're bound to be ready. Bring on the rapture!

This year's Best of L.A. issue pays homage to all the places in the city we're just not ready to say goodbye to yet. Nominate your favorite places in our third annual Readers Poll.

This year is our biggest yet: We're asking for votes in 100 categories, from Best Karaoke (how better to party away your last night on earth?) to Best Taco Truck (because if we're not getting out of here alive, you'd better bet we want double our usual order.)

We'll tabulate your nominations to determine our finalists — and your votes will ultimately select the Readers Poll winners.

We'll accept nominations through August 18. Then, check back August 25, when we reopen with a select list of finalists in each category, chosen based on your nominations. Votes will be accepted through September 22, with winners announced in our October 2 Best of L.A. issue.
