Over the past week or so, we have introduced our readers to the different nominees for our end of year awards. Now it’s time for you, the reader, to get your say in the overall vote for who wins!

You can go back and check all of the write ups from our contributors which give you the details on each and every nominee. I’ll also link them here for you. Don’t forget to check out our last podcast episode as well, as we discussed each of the awards and nominees at length!

For the fan voting, we will be using a combination of this article with polls for each category as well as Twitter polls for each category. The fan vote will count for 13 of the total vote, with the remainder of the vote coming from our eight regular contributors that we have on the AAE team. Since Twitter will only allow four options per category, we went ahead and voted as contributors to narrow the field down to four for the few categories in which we listed five options while introducing the nominees.

Without further ado, here are your nominees and polls for the 2018-2019 AAE End of Year Awards!
