The final hours of voting for the Greater Utica People's Choice Awards on WIBX's Keeler Show are underway.  Voting is open until Thursday morning; the first awards will be announced at 7:35 on WIBX.

The nominations began several weeks ago as local people nominated their favorites in food in over 20 different categories like Best Pizza, Best Fine Dining and Best Utica Greens.  Anyone who received a large number of nominations were added to the category and people were then able to vote again for their favorite.  The business, dish or person who receives the most votes by April 2nd, will win the People's Choice.  'Local' is defined as anywhere in the Utica, Rome, Mohawk Valley region.
