Now it’s your chance to weigh in.

We added this new category to this year’s Best of Dayton contest and asked the public to nominate their favorite chicken sandwiches for Best of Dayton. Those places that earned the most nominations — including local restaurants and a few fast-food chains — now appear on the final ballot up for vote through Feb. 7.
