The Love Chicago Awards polls are open! Over the past month, you've nominated hundreds of restaurants, bars, cafés, stores and cultural venues that make Chicago's neighborhoods shine. Now it's time to cast your ballot and let us know which local venues deserve to be crowned the best of the best. Showing some love is simple—just go here and cast your vote for your favorite places. You can vote in as many areas and as many categories as you like, but, unlike in the nomination phase, you can only vote for one venue in each category.

Now it's up to you to make the tough choices and crown Love Chicago Awards winners across the city, from Rogers Park to Hegewisch and everywhere in between. Voting closes on October 31, so make sure to weigh in on the best venues in all of your favorite neighborhoods while you have the chance (full details can be found in our Love Chicago Awards FAQs). The Love Awards extend far beyond Chicago's borders, so you can also recognize your favorite places in ParisLisbon, London, New York and LA.

What are you waiting for? Show some love and vote for your favorite spots today!
