Interim Results - 2006 Reader Poll

 

March 6th, 2006

Click here for final results in our tenth annual reader poll.

Below you will find interim results in our tenth annual reader poll. This year we tried something new. Instead of providing one or two sets of interim results, we:

We made this change so that readers were given the opportunity to look into the process and see how very fluid it is. In the past, titles that did not appear on the first set of interim results have actually won, which means that every vote is critical and your vote could make the difference. But because we didn't want to affect the outcome in a horse-race fashion, our allowing that look into the process was only of a limited duration, and all votes received in the poll's final two weeks were not divulged in any way prior to the announcement of the winners. We hope this change in procedure encouraged an even higher level of voting than we've experienced in the past.

(Each category's results are in alphabetical order (including "a" and "the" - that's how the database sorts) by title, not by the number of votes received.)
