The Daily News Readers' Choice


Galveston County, get ready for the biggest and most popular awards event of the year — one where you pick the winners: The Daily News Readers' Choice Awards!


The Daily News has been collecting readers' input on the best of the best in Galveston County since 1990 — and this year promises to be the best yet.


We're continuing the wildly popular new Readers' Choice experience we rolled out in 2015. Readers' Choice has a new look and a new voting process offering both a print and online ballot. Additionally, you’ll find a few new categories to vote for your favorite businesses.
