Welcome to the 2023 LEO Weekly Readers’ Choice!

Cast your ballot for 200+ local favorites and support the people, places, businesses and organizations you love.

Vote for all or only one — you decide. Voting opens at 12:01am on Wednesday, August 16th, 2023.

One ballot accepted per each email address per day.

Voting closes at 11:59 pm Sunday, September 18th.

Results will be published in the October 11 issue of LEO Weekly.

You MUST REGISTER TO VOTE with a valid email address in order for your vote to count. Votes without a valid email address WILL NOT BE COUNTED. Thank you for voting!

The awards are meant to celebrate what the LEO community chooses as the best in our readership area. That means that the winners must be local, and, yes… that includes Southern Indiana. So no votes will be counted for the Museum of Modern Art or the Mütter Museum as “Best Museum (Not a Gallery).”

And just so you know, we have a process to make sure no one can stack the votes by voting with several emails that belong to the same person. We also will not allow anyone, or any business, to win a category for which they are not eligible. For instance, a blogger cannot win “Best Barbershop.”

Most important, votes will not be counted for any individual, business or organization that espouses racist, sexist or violent messages or beliefs. LEO is not a platform for those views.

We do our best to be fair, fun and transparent in allowing you — our readers — to hand out the awards, and we are always looking for ways to improve.

While we may not be perfect, at least we’re better than the Electoral College.
