Best of Marin 2017: Voting time!

There are countless things to love about Marin County—from its
thriving art, theater, film and music events, to its food scene, to its
natural beauty. Our way to honor all of that is to ask you, our dear
readers, what it is that makes Marin special. Your answers from our
annual Best of Marin readers’ poll determine winners in categories that include
Arts & Culture, Fitness & Recreation, Food & Drink, Home Improvement, Family
and Everyday. Our Best of Marin issue becomes a guide that you can hold onto
throughout the year to refer to whenever you’re looking for “the best” of anything.
This year, we’ve added two new sections—Beauty, Health & Wellness and Romance,
along with some fun new categories (see below for a full list). We look forward to tallying your votes, and
we’re excited to unveil the winners in our Best of Marin 2017 issue, publishing on
April 26. Happy voting!

A few online voting rules:
» Complete at least 20 votes of the ballot or it won’t be counted
» Include your name and a daytime phone number
» Ballots are confidential, but you may be called to confirm your vote
» Only one entry per person is permitted
» Pacific Sun staff members, contributors, advertisers and their
families may vote
» Deadline for online ballots is February 28 at 5pm
