This year's Taste of America bracket has been posted for you to vote online and show your home state pride.  

Each state is represented by either one or two dishes, many of which have changed since last year . The dishes were chosen by survey results filled out by Roll Call readers suggesting the best dishes from each state .  

The first round of voting on these 64 dishes opened Monday and will close Friday, May 20 at 5 p.m. During the voting period, participants can vote as many times as they want.  

And even better, if you share your bracket via Twitter with #TofA2016, you enter into a chance to attend the Taste of America reception at the Congressional Baseball Game .  

Round 2 will open May 23 at 9 a.m., round 3 will open June 6 at 9 a.m., and the final round will open June 13 at 9 a.m., one week before the game.  

Roll Call will announce the winner of this year's Taste of America trophy on June 23 at a reception before the game. Last year's honors went to Indiana’s pork tenderloin . Foods that make it to the 4th round — the Elite Eight — will be available for sampling at the game.
