VOTE NOW: The Polls Are Open in Our Best of the Chippewa Valley Reader Poll 2021

Log on now: Voting ends Tuesday, Dec. 8, at midnight

We’re not gonna deny that these are turbulent, unpredictable times. Another thing we won’t deny is the ongoing and extraordinarily high interest in the people, places, and things that make the Chippewa Valley the envy of our regional peers – even during a pandemic. Now, through our annual poll, you have the chance to voice your opinions on the good stuff, the bad stuff, what you missed, and what you appreciated during the past year.

Now’s your chance to make your voice heard in our annual Best of the Chippewa Valley Reader Poll. Voting began today – Wednesday, Nov. 25 – and runs through midnight on Tuesday, Dec. 8. Log on to www.volumeone.org/bestof and peruse dozens of questions – from nightlife and restaurants to pet care and parks – and cast your votes. If you don’t see your favorite options listed, there’s an easy way to add them so you (and others) can push them to the top. 

New for this year (and, we really really hope, only for this year!) is a category we’ve called Masking & Sanitizing, which focuses on all the um, “unique” circumstances that have been thrown at us in 2020.

Winners of this poll will be featured in a special issue of Volume One on Feb. 4. The poll has been running since 2007, celebrating the people and places that make the Valley a great place to live, work, and visit. Considering the year we’ve all had, that mission is more important than ever as we flip the bird to 2020 and turn the corner into 2021. We’ll see you at the polls!
