  1. I love your peoples’ choice initiatives but I do think calling it “Best of NL” is a bit of an issue given the concentration of your circulation and readership in St. John’s – good provincial representation would take huge effort. I suspect this will quickly become a “Best of St. John’s and bay establishments frequented by townies,” though a “Best of St. John’s” or “Best of the Avalon” would be completely valid on its own.

  2. Agreed. But when we call it “Best of St. John’s” we get comments we’re excluding the rest of the province. So doing Best of NL over St. John’s seems the best of the two options, as its the best attempt at inclusivity? Job to say.

  3. Just the once. subsequent votes from same device are auto-deleted to ensure one enthusiastic voter isn’t swaying results

  4. There should be response options provided and room for people to choose an alternative if desired. You would get more responses that way.
