Today, Aug. 17, is your last chance to help Alameda Patch determine the best local businesses in our Readers' Choice 2012 poll. Vote for your favorite places and businesses in five categories: antique stores, family fun, food and drink, health and beauty, and pets. You may vote for one category or all of them.
Whichever business gets the most votes will be named the Readers' Choice winner.
Businesses included in the polls were nominated by Patch viewers in June and early July.
Be sure to click on the "submit" button at the end of each category to make sure your vote is counted.
Here are links to voting in each category:
