Vote for The Atlantic!

You, loyal reader, can help The Atlantic win two separate awards for which we have been nominated. 


First, the Webby Awards, billed as the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. This year we are nominated for three Webbys: Best Magazine Site, Best Writing, and Best Political Blog. (We won the Webby for Best Magazine Site in 2009.)
