An Internet poll is not the most ideal vote-collection system in the world, as we all know. That's why we always strive to be 100 percent transparent with our readers at Patch that this is not in any way a scientific exercise. Our readers' choice features are designed to be a fun and completely friendly expression of our collective passion for great food, great service or a great product, all close to home. And yes, some people will always try to mobilize as much of that energy as they can, but at the end of the day, we hope readers learn what their neighbors love and small business owners appreciate all that hard-won loyalty. (We know it's not easy to be your own boss these days!) So toward that end, we consider comments, reviews as well as the poll—not just any one aspect—in communicating back to readers who rises to the top. It's not an all-or-nothing game. We live and shop here too, so if anyone wants to learn more about how they can interact with their customers on Patch or have any suggestions for future readers' choice features, don't hesitate to reach out to your local editor or Senior Regional Editor Katie O'Connor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
