Keep your votes coming for the best of Bartlett

Readers' Choice 2014 logoVote now for your favorite Bartlett businesses, personnel, and civic leaders in the 2014 Readers' Choice survey for readers of The Bartlett Express.

We’ve added new categories for both merchants and the outstanding people who make Bartlett great.

Vote for your favorite teacher, the school mascot who makes you smile the biggest, and the sales clerk who went out of his way to help you in a “shopping emergency.” Vote for the place that serves the best donuts, pulled your car out of the ditch, or wheeled and dealed to get you the best-possible home mortgage. But the key word is “Vote.”

You’re got from now until July 18; the survey closes at 5 p.m.! [EDITOR'S NOTE: Earlier reports incorrectly used a different date; July 18 is correct.]
