While voting of another sort is a hot topic on the minds of many this week, Eater is asking readers to do their part in civic dining duty by casting a vote each day this week for the upcoming third annual Eater Awards. Today kicks off the week with a ballot for Chef of the Year and we need your help.
Here's how the voting works across the board: Eater editors have named five nominees for each of the five major categories. Eater readers will have 24 hours to vote, narrowing the nominees to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner to be announced at the Eater Awards next Monday, November 12. Ready to play your part? Polls are open for the next 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed. Time to vote for Miami's Chef of the Year for 2012.
