With season six of this awesome drama series in the can, it's time to decide who the best Walking Dead characters are, by voting. Walking Dead fans, get ready to sound off, by casting your votes up or down in this poll for the characters in this AMC drama, which is without a doubt one of the best shows on TV right now.

It's no surprise that many of us believe that Rick Grimes (played by Walking Dead actor Andrew Lincoln) is the best character on The Walking Dead. The same can be said for Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and several other original characters, some who are, sadly, no longer with us.
