For the fifth year in a row, the producers of the Chicago Auto Show are hosting Best of Show voting, allowing the public to select their favorite vehicles and exhibit.

Attendees can vote at kiosks located at the exit of the North Hall and in the South Hall next to Volvo and text their votes using cell phones directly from the show floor. People can vote at home as well by going to www.ChicagoAutoShow.com and clicking on Vote for Best of Show.

The nominees are as follows:

Voters also vote on a fifth category, “Vehicle I’d Most Like to See in my Driveway.” That category is open to ANY vehicle on the show floor.

Best of Show Voting is being sponsored by the Chicago Sun-Times and SearchChicago Autos. Fifty lucky voters will win either a $100 Shell Gas Card or a $100 Cash Card, courtesy of the Chicago Sun-Times and SearchChicago Autos.

Best of Show winners will be announced at the conclusion of the show and the awards will be passed out at the Midwest Automotive Media Association’s Spring Rally.
