The “Best of The Bronx” campaign, presented by Ponce Bank, and promoted by Schneps Media (publisher of The Bronx Times, Bronx Times Reporter, and other local outlets), accepts nominations from January to mid-April each year on their website (https://bestof.bxtimes.com/nominations/).  The top nominees then advance to an online ballot which last year opened for voting in mid-April and extended through end of August.  Voting takes place online via that same website; each person is allowed one vote per person per day for each category. Once the voting ends, results are added up and double-checked for fraudulent voting or obvious abuse (those votes are then removed) by the campaign’s organizers.  After this, the results are added up again. According to the campaign’s website, a third-party administrator runs the “Best of The Bronx” voting pages.

The City Island Chamber of Commerce organized a marketing campaign not only to promote the nomination of Chamber businesses, but also to use the opportunity to tell the stories of those businesses and their nominations on the Chamber website and social media.
