Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

You can't hate on democracy if you haven't yet done your part to participate. At 11:59 p.m. our Best of Miami 2013 Reader's Poll will close down and a tally will be taken to determine a winner.

So what's it gonna be? Is the best inexpensive restaurant in Miami La Camaronera Fish Market? Is Miami's best chef Michael Schwartz? Danny Serfer? Todd Erickson? Who makes the best burger? Do you think it's Shake Shack?

It's up to you to choose a winner from the top five candidates (which you nominated, by the way). It's going to take 10 minutes from your day and all you need to do is have a My Voice Nation username (which takes less than two minutes to get)..

Go vote, vote, vote!

If you're still not convinced of the importance of making your opinion count, keep in mind that the winner from each Reader's Poll category will be published in our Best of Miami issue which is set to hit stands June 13. For example, if New Times selected Yardbird for Best Brunch, the Reader's Poll winner at the top of the Best Brunch category will say something like we the people choose Morgan's.

So get those rears in gear and head over to the polls. There's no line, no waiting, no hassle. You can even do it from the comfort of your couch or bed and the best part is you don't even have to wear pants!
