Voting is now open for our 10th Annual Best Of list!

It’s time to show your support for your favorite local businesses and organizations in our 10th Anniversary Best Of Readers’ Poll!

The last year has been difficult for many businesses, so it’s more important than ever that we celebrate the best our community has to offer and let businesses know how much they mean to their fans.

Please vote for your favorites local businesses (from Westchester, Playa del Rey, Playa Vista, Marina del Rey and surrounding areas) in more than 80 categories. Voting should take about ten minutes to complete. While you don’t have to vote for everything on this list, you must vote in at least 10 categories for your vote to count.

The top three vote-getters in each category–The “Best Of” and two runner-up “Favorites”– will be revealed in the August Best Of edition of the HomeTown News.
