Those who are not registered will have to complete a very short registration process (it costs nothing and takes a lot longer to describe how to do it that it does to actually do it).
To register, go to (it works on mobile devices as well) and click the “Register (free) link on the right side of the page immediately below the black menu bar.
After completing the short new user registration form, click the process subscription button.
The final step in the registration process is for the user to click the verification link in the email sent to them by our website. Voters can then return to the site, log in with their user name and password and click on the Best of Ojai Valley contest link in the main menu bar.
Users’ personal information will not be sold or used for any marketing purposes. The need to register is only to insure that people are not voting multiple times.
To make the survey as easy to complete as possible, it is divided into five sections; Services, Retail, Food & Drink, Health & Beauty and Others. Voters do not have to answer every question. Those who wish to skip an entire section, can scroll to the bottom of the page and click the next button.
Each question will allow voters to “write in” an answer if their favorite is not included in the menu list. Write-in votes not only help determine who wins, it also insures that businesses receiving enough write-in votes will automatically be listed in that question in next year’s survey.
