How close are these races, really?

In all of these categories except Events, Activities, and Everything else, the leader is ahead by fewer than 25 votes! So your vote (and sharing this contest) can make a substantial difference!  

I wish my favorite places ranked higher! 

If you haven't voted yet, you can vote now. And if you've already voted, tell your friends. (Please don't vote more than once; it makes more work for us and doesn't add to your total. Seriously, we have several ways of catching repeat entries. Just ask your friends to vote instead!) 

When will it end?

This poll closes at the same time as our Kickstarter campaign: 11:59PM on Friday, July 31st. 

And in case you hadn't heard, we are stretching right now on Kickstarter to turn this coloring book into a 48-pager! More pages means more of these places get included! Back us before Friday night to help make that happen!
