As has become its custom in the Internet age. DownBeat magazine once again is allowing online voting in this year's annual Readers Poll. You can see a list of those already elected to the magazine's Hall of Fame here, and cast your ballot for your favorite musicians, bands and recordings of the year here.
If you're concerned with online privacy, please note that - ostensibly to help the mag's staffers curb any attempts at ballot box-stuffing - you must submit your name and address in order to vote. Results of the 2009 DownBeat Readers Poll will be reported in the magazine's December issue.
