What’s your favorite? Cast your vote in Bulletin’s Best


Where is the best place in Las Cruces to buy a recliner? What about your favorite place to get your hair cut? Who is the king of red enchiladas?

Next week, we will begin seeking the answers to these questions and roughly 300 more, as the Las Cruces Bulletin launches the nomination phase of our inaugural Bulletin’s Best competition. Beginning Sept. 1, readers can go to the Bulletin’s Best section of our website (www.lascrucesbulletin. com/bulletins-best/) and make nominations for one or more of the many categories in the 12 divisions.

Look through Arts & Entertainment, Auto & Transportation, Business & Finance, Community, Eating & Drinking, Education, Health & Well Being, Home, Professionals, Shopping, Sports & Recreation, and our category designed specifically for the Mesilla Valley: Life is Good in Las Cruces.

Each of those divisions has multiple categories for you to nominate your favorites. After a month of collecting nominations, we’ll be ready for the voting period, which will start Oct. 1 and last through the last day of the month, Halloween Night. Then in November, we’ll tally the votes and determine the winners.

You, as our readers, will be the voters and you might even suggest some categories we haven’t thought of.

Check out the website before Sept. 1 to get familiar with the categories and once the nominating begins, visit again to make sure your favorite picks get on the ballot. Once you make a nomination, it will go through our vetting process to make sure it’s indeed an actual business and in the Mesilla Valley.

The process coincides more or less with our local, state and national campaign and elections. The Bulletin’s Best gives you the opportunity to vote on many more things than those elections, and you’ll probably have more fun doing it. Also, unlike the national elections, you can vote more than once on Bulletin’s Best. In fact, you can vote once a day on up to four devices during October. That’s a potential of 124 votes if you have four devices. That could be your home computer, a tablet, your phone and your laptop.

Knowing the passion Las Crucens have about, well, everything, it will be exciting to see how all of you vote on everything from chicken tacos to high school football to getting new tires.

I personally am excited about Bulletin’s Best. Because you’ll be voting online, it’s a truly COVID-safe event. It’s a chance for everyone in the Mesilla Valley to voice their opinion on almost anything you can imagine. But it also means we’ll be doing something together, and engaging

with the whole community. We may not get to assemble 20,000 of us to watch the Aggie-Lobo football game this year, but 20,000 of us can vote together in Bulletin’s Best.

Even though it may be a while before we can go to restaurants at 100 percent capacity, we can certainly order green enchiladas, pizza and barbecue from a few different local restaurants so we can make an accurate vote.
