It's time to vote on which companies will get to compete in Consumerist's Third Annual Worst Company In America contest. This year, you nominated 121 different companies, a new record. The poll is inside. You get one vote. The companies receiving the most votes will get seeded in our March Madness-style brackets. Then the clash of the customer service midgets commences! Note: because there's 121 companies, the poll may take some time to load.

UPDATE: There were so many bad companies that it broke our poll system. We’ll have to take down the post and find a new poll system and try again. Any recommendations for non-crappy poll systems that can handle over several thousands responses?

UPDATE: We are working on a new poll solution and hope to try this again tomorrow.
