We’re Rolling with the Swampies!

Nominations closed for 2 more award categories early this morning: Parking Lot of the Year and Drive-Thru of the Year. We’ll announce the official nominees and open the voting for both next. Voting began late yesterday for Favorite Houston Design Cliché and Best Teardown.

We’ve also posted the official voting rules, which are different this year. For each category, you can vote in a comment, by email, on Twitter, or from Facebook — or all 4! Please note also that campaigning for your favorite award candidates — by sending out emails to friends, Twittering, or posting about the contest in forums, other blogs, or on Facebook, for example — is highly encouraged. Start a groundswell for your choices!

There’s still just a bit more time for you to submit your nominations for the 6 remaining categories. The deadline for submissions for Walmart of the Year and the Washington Ave Award is tonight at midnight. Got any last minute suggestions — or improvements to the nominations that have already been sent in?
