Welcome to the 2017 Herald Readers' Choice! To Vote, you will need to register with your email address, name and a password. Once you register, a confirmation email will be sent to you and then you can start voting for your favorites! If you don't see your favorite listed, you can add it to the category at the bottom as a write in vote. To be eligible to be selected as a Readers' Choice winner, nominees must be located in or do business in Monterey County. Nominees who are outside of Monterey County will not be counted. You must vote on at least 20 sub-categories for your votes to count. You can vote one time per email address, however, you can log back in and choose from more categories later.
