Get ready for Danville Express' Readers Choice

It's time once again to cast your vote for the best places to eat, drink, shop and spend time in Danville!

The online Readers Choice Danville ballot will be available Monday, Aug. 13 until to 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 9 at

You will need to vote in at least five categories, complete the contact information at the end of the ballot and confirm you vote via email. We allow only one vote per person and confirmation is a way to discourage ballot box stuffing. It is important to remember that your ballot will not be counted until you activate it by responding to a confirmation e-mail that will automatically be sent to you.

If you don't see your favorite on the dropdown list, please write in your selection to be tallied.

Do you have a business and want in on the fun? Print out a flier to help promote your business and contact us at 837-8300 for information on our ballot pages.
