To see the categories and vote in the Wilkes Journal-Patriot's "Best of Wilkes" contest, go to: or look for a ballot in a print version of the Wilkes Journal-Patriot. Remember, just one choice per category and the choice must be in Wilkes County. Only one ballot per person.

The categories are grouped by “Best for Food and Drink,” “Best for Retail,” “Best for Services” and “Best Miscellaneous.” You can write in your choice for “the Best” in as many categories as you wish, but only one ballot per person.

All paper ballots must be turned in and all online voting must be completed by Aug. 24, 2019. The results will be announced in the newspaper.
