Best of Alameda Ballot

The 2024 Voting is Complete

Votes are being tallied and winners will be announced soon


Best of Alameda!

The Best of Alameda was born with the idea to give readers throughout the East Bay a chance to voice their opinions on their personal “Best” choices for everything Alameda and the East Bay. The program has evolved over the years, and hopefully, with a lot of input from our readers, we’ve been able to make it better and better.

The voting for Best of Alameda is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in mid March and April with open write-in nominations taking place.

As the nomination period in the first round comes to a close at the end of April, shortly after, the second round opens with the top nominees in each category being selectable in this final round of voting during May and early June. Write-in nominations are no longer available, and voters are open to select their favorites from among those that are listed.

The final winners are posted in July/August

We hope you enjoy! And we hope you cast your vote in March/April and again in May!
