VOTE NOW: Best of Rochester 2015 Primary Ballot

The Best of Rochester Primary Ballot is now closed. Please check back on Wednesday, September 23, for our final poll.

It's time to revisit the Flower City.

Rochester has a wealth of interesting places to explore, people to meet, and things to do. So what is it about this city that you want to tell a newcomer? Or maybe your neighbor is a Rochester native; what should they know in order to see this city with a fresh perspective?

Each year, City Newspaper asks its readers to tell us what YOU think about the best people, places, and things in Rochester. This time, we want to take it a step further: As the Best of Rochester process moves forward, we want our readers to use this opportunity to explore Rochester again. To try a new restaurant. Check out a new mural. Really think about where you would take an out-of-towner.

To get started, we need your suggestions.

Fill in YOUR favorites in at least 40 of the 140 categories for your ballot to count. Voting in the Primary Ballot will close promptly at 5 p.m. on Friday, September 18.

Then check back on Wednesday, September 23, to see which local people, places, and things made the Best of Rochester Final Ballot.

REMEMBER: We are looking for the best of Greater Rochester. Votes for national chains will not be counted.

Did we screw something up? Get rid of a category you love? Neglect to add one you requested? Let us know! E-mail themail@rochester-citynews.com.
