Vote for 2020’s Best of TimesOC


Dear Readers,

It is that time again! The Orange County’s Best Reader’s Poll is the one poll our community turns to year after year, voting for their selections for the best products and services in Orange County. During these uncertain times, we want to bring you the poll that recognizes OC’s Best and Favorite businesses.

Who will be worthy of being named among “Orange County’s Best”? The poll covers all areas and aspects of our lives, from amazing restaurants to recreation destinations, shops, services and more. Just look at the list of categories here at and nominate from now through August 23rd. Then come back and vote, starting on September 1st. Our thanks for helping us determine who should be among OC’s Best!

As we emphasize each year, we want you to know how the poll works. I wanted to share with you some of the behind-the-scenes work that is done to ensure fairness and accuracy of all voting. To start, all votes pass through a verification process. We then review the voting to identify and address any activity that could jeopardize the credibility of the program. 

Our “Readers Poll” is designed to reflect the voting of our audience. We encourage companies to increase the frequency of their messaging about their desire to win their categories. Readers will be seeing these campaigns, asking for their votes. After all, this is a contest for a coveted prize — the right to be known as the best of Orange County.

Good luck to all of our nominees.

Raymond Arroyo, Advertising Sales Director, TimesOC
