Herald & Review exterior September 2018

The Herald & Review is shown in September 2018.  

I'm handing over the keys of this week's editor's note to Alexander Gould, the Herald & Review's general manager and vice president of sales, who gets to talk about our Readers' Choice Awards coming up. Thanks for reading. — Chris Coates, Central Illinois editor 

We at the Herald & Review enjoy this time of year, as it's when we get to learn who our readers believe are the best in the greater Decatur area. As part of the Herald & Review’s Best of Readers’ Choice Awards annual program, we feature over 150 for you to cast a ballot.

So not to overwhelm, we break the program down to five categories, including services, medical, people, shopping and eat, drink and play. The nomination period concluded Sunday, but don’t worry — you are still able to participate in our voting for this year’s awards, which will open Wednesday.

Those interested in voting for services, people and medical categories can vote Feb. 12-18. Eat, drink, shop & play categories will open up Feb. 19 and run until the 25. Visit during the voting period to cast your ballot.
