Our annual Boulder County Gold People’s Choice Awards is your chance to recognize your favorite retail stores, entertainment and dining venues, and service providers.

Think of the times a business has gone above and beyond for you to find the exact item you desired. Now you can thank them for it. Your vote means even more right now to local businesses who deserve recognition for what they bring to our community.

Do you have a go-to shop for clothes, art, accessories or housewares? Tell the world about it when you vote. We make it easy, with both print and online ballots.

Voting has taken place for the Service, Faces & Places category. Shopper’s Paradise voting begins tomorrow—Wednesday, Aug. 12, and Eats, Drinks & Entertainment voting begins Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Your votes, together with thousands of others, will be counted, tabulated and reported in the Boulder County Gold Winners’ Edition, publishing Sunday, Oct. 25 in the Daily Camera. Your opinion matters like never before.
