We only urge readers to play favorites once per year — now is that time.

You may have noticed our annual 2016 Best of Bellevue competition icon on our website at www.bellevuereporter.com.

It’s that time of year again when we ask readers to vote for their favorite people, businesses, restaurants, nonprofit organizations and more in Bellevue.

This popular poll asks residents to pick their favorites in nearly 40 categories in the contest, which is an annual showdown amongst businesses. Winners earn bragging rights for a year.

But beyond business boasting, this is your chance to honor all the movers and shakers in Bellevue.

Who is your favorite financial advisor? Veterinarian? What is your favorite hair salon, senior living facility and yoga studio? What is the best date spot in Bellevue? The best place to work, to worship, to watch live entertainment and to take your kids?

This year, we have over 40 categories for readers to cast their votes including everything from the best new business and realtor to best teacher, burger and nonprofit.

We want to salute these entrepreneurs, officials, people and organizations that help make the Bellevue community exceptional.

Complete your entry online at www.bellevuereporter.com by clicking on the “Best of Bellevue” icon at the top of the web page.

Honor the local businesses you frequent and the people who make a difference in this community and vote by June 29.

The top choices will appear in the Aug. 5 edition of the Reporter.
