Local papers often have an end-of-the-year poll, listing reader favorites in categories like “Best Mexican Restaurant” or “Best Piano Tuner”… CityVoters has raised a $2.6 million second round to take that concept to the web. Investors include Allen & Co. and past backer Dace Ventures. The Cambridge, Mass.-based startup, whose first round was unspecified, helps local media companies, like WESH in Florida, run these types of best-of business votes online. The company is going after a similar area to sites like Yelp, although it’s more about selling the platform than selling its brand to consumers. Release.
