AOL Tries Its "Best" in 25 Cities

AOL today kicked off its own “get out the vote” drive, but it has nothing to do with the fall elections. As part of its heightened local focus, the company is bringing back its City’s Best sites, last seen in 2008, in 25 U.S. metropolitan areas. From now through Nov. 30, site visitors will be encouraged to vote for the best local businesses in a variety of categories (Best Burgers, Best Dive Bars, Best Places to Break Up, etc.), creating a grassroots city guide in the process.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
