There are two rounds of voting for Best of Madison 2019. The first round of nominations closed August 31. The final voting round is live now! Vote for Fontana Sports Specialties!!
Up to six top vote-getters in each category will become finalists in round two. The final voting period is from September 17 - October 31. Unlike round one of daily voting, in round two of final voting, you will only be able to vote once per category, so consider your pick and make your vote count!
Since Madison Magazine has discontinued the Best of the Burbs poll, the Best of Madison poll will qualify vote-getters residing throughout Dane County, plus cities in the counties contingent to Dane County—which include the counties of Columbia, Dodge, Iowa, Green, Rock, Jefferson and Sauk.
You will be asked to register when you navigate this poll. It will ask for a valid email address to vote. We WILL police entries and follow up on suspicious registrations or ballot stuffing.
In order to move on to round two of voting, vote-getters must be what Madison Magazine considers a local business, and they must qualify for the category. For a business to qualify as local, it must be locally owned and operated and cannot be a national or international franchise. The only exceptions are franchise businesses first established in the state of Wisconsin, as well as car dealerships and hotels.
