Finalists, honorable mentions and winners have all been posted on the ballot page
After over 20,000 nominations, more than 150,000 votes, countless posts on social media and three months of hoping, the results of the WRAL.com Voters’ Choice Awards, presented by Millennium Buildings, have been announced! Congratulations to all who were even nominated – the awards were more competitive than ever before, and this year featured winners from all across the state.
Finalists come from all over NC
Over 147 categories ran the gamut of the best businesses, places, people and things our fine state has to offer. North Carolina residents came out in droves to support their faves, their hidden gems and their ol’ reliables. We were excited to see the variety of new finalists, more than we’ve had since we began the awards in 2015.
In our fifth year of the awards, we aimed to expand our geographic footprint even further across North Carolina, and we were glad to welcome new finalists from as far away as Wrightsville and Asheville in the east and west, Clayton, Greensboro, Fuquay-Varina and more in the Piedmont. Our finalists are multiple award-winning and widely-recognized in their geographic areas, including restaurants by Ashley Christensen, some of the best accounting firms and heating/air conditioning contractors, the most popular festivals and vacation destinations across the state, and more.
