Welcome to the 2012 Star-Telegram Readers' Choice Ballot. Here are things to know. And rules.

It's been a year since we asked, so we'd like you to tell us (again, perhaps) about some of your favorite things, places to go, things to do, where you like to grab a great meal, and shop for cool stuff.

Here's a Readers' Choice calendar:
