CLEVELAND, Ohio – There are only three days left to vote in the quarterfinal round of cleveland.com's Best High School Marching Band contest.

More than 60,000 votes have been cast so far, yet all four matchups are still very close races. Scroll down to see the standings as of Monday morning and to vote in the four polls.

The only way to keep your favorite band in the lead or turn the tables in a matchup is to vote, and to do it often. You're encouraged to vote hourly before the polls close on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 7 a.m.

The eight quarterfinalists, selected by our readers last week from 32 contestants, are now competing in a bracketed tournament, based on where each band finished in first round voting.

Here's an update on the standings as of Monday at 9:30 a.m.:

No. 1 Riverside Regiment vs. No. 8 Hudson Explorers: Riverside took an early lead and is still holding it with 53 percent of the votes. Hudson has 47 percent. 

No. 2 Avon Lake Shoremen vs. No. 7 Berea-Midpark Titans: The Shoremen are currently trailing slightly behind the Titans, who lead 50.24 percent to Avon Lake's 49.76 percent.

No. 3 Brunswick Blue Devils vs. No. 6 Shaker Heights Raiders: This race is tight, with both schools currently bringing in 50 percent of the votes. 

No. 4 Cuyahoga Falls Black Tigers vs. No. 5 Elyria Pioneers: Cuyahoga Falls has the lead with 54 percent of the vote. 

Again, voting in each quarterfinal matchup is open until Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 7 a.m. You can vote once an hour so make sure you vote early and often. Remember, votes must come from the United States and do not carry over from previous weeks.

When casting your vote, be sure to complete the captcha step that appears after you click "vote."

The remainder of the contest will go as follows:

Oct. 6-12: Voting in the semifinals round. Cleveland.com will be at each band's performance at that week's football game for videos, photos and feature content for the website.

Oct. 13-20: Voting in the final round to determine the winner of Greater Cleveland's Best High School Marching Band contest. Cleveland.com will again feature the two finalists during football games this week.

Cleveland.com's "Best of" team will visit the winning band during its game Oct. 20-22 and present the band with an award.
