Readers Choice San Ramon Valley 2014

Voting is open through Sept. 1

This year we're stepping up the competition and having one contest for Danville and San Ramon. The online Readers Choice San Ramon Valley ballot is available now until 11:59 p.m. Monday, Sept. 1, 2014, at

You will need to vote in at least five categories, complete the contact information at the end of the ballot and confirm your vote via email. We allow only one ballot 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 email 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.
