It's election day! Make sure you do your civic duty and vote.

All month long we have been compiling names because we wanted to roll out this year's nominees for the Hot Awards 2018 on Election Day. Not only to encourage and remind people to get out and vote but also to remind people that you don't have to get into politics to make a difference.

There are people doing phenomenal things in and outside of our community. On December 7th we will get together to salute the nominees in the 2nd Annual Hot Awards at Jupiter Hall inside of Lucky Strike.

Vote for your favorites that help to make the Capital Region excel in music, entertainment, local politics, and sports. Vote below and listen to hear more information about the nominees on Hot 99.1.
