The November 4th election is over and we all heard about the high voter turnout at the polls. Whether you are pleased, disappointed or indifferent to the outcomes of this years election, you probably felt the pressure to cast your vote. So thats that, its over. But its time to vote again! In the midst of the Presidential hoopla, an alternative polling location opened, for the 2008 Sizzle Awards, presented by Southern Exposure Magazine and FranklinIs.com.
The hot topic on our minds in the FranklinIs.com office has been the Sizzle Awards. We have been busy monitoring the poll, encouraging people to vote and watching the ongoing results. In case you arent familiar with the Sizzle Awards, I can tell you all about it…
The Sizzle Awards are Williamson Countys only online readers choice poll. This is the third annual Sizzle Awards presented by Southern Exposure Magazine and FranklinIs.com. Polls are open for six weeks, from November 1st through December 15th, so theres a lot more sizzling in my near future. It is a Best of poll allowing the public to vote for their favorite businesses in Williamson County.
There are around 90 sub-categories including womens clothing boutique, bookstore, dental practice, auto repair, landscaping, day spa, kids haircut and home renovation. Of course the poll is dominated by the most popular category, cuisine. There are sub-categories for every type of cuisine from pizza to sushi to meat n three to bakery.
I have enjoyed watching as the votes come in. It has been interesting to learn about businesses Ive never heard of and to see what the voters choose as their favorites. Sometime I agree with the results and sometimes Im confused why one business has more votes than another. But Ive cast my vote, so I can have an opinion.
It is still early and there is time to make your vote count, too. No excuses: there are no lines, no confusing ballot boxes and you can even vote in your pajamas! Its that kind of year for a record voter turnout, so get voting Williamson County.
