Unlike certain presidential elections which shall remain nameless, the annual MauiTime Best of Maui readers’ poll is very democratic. Readers fill out their ballots, then we count the ballots. Whoever gets the most votes wins the election! What’s so difficult about that?
But we digress. In the posts linked below, you’ll find who our readers decided makes the best sushi, hosts the greatest karaoke, offers the finest burritos, manufactures the prettiest jewelry and so on:
Maui is an extremely diverse place, full of vibrant color and sound and people who share cultural traditions from all over the world. While it’s not always as peaceful or serene as the tourist brochures make it out to be–no place inhabited by people ever is–the island has a great deal to offer everyone.
So thank you, readers, for telling us what you like best about Maui. While putting together the issue was difficult (small staff, vastly increased page count and it required us to do basic math), we couldn’t have done it without you.
