Shinken, Gokai and Deka. They're arguably the best acting, best storytelling and overall best done sentai of the lot.

Gokaiger is a given for me here, it was the first Toku Series I ever watched and the reason I even got into them as much as I have is that it was an excellent starting point for me, not only did it have good characters and great interactions between them along with a good plot that didn't feel forced every episode, it also introduced me to everything that came before in fun ways that, even if I had never seen these series, could understand what was going on relatively well. It's also the reason I even bothered to check other series like Shinkenger, which is still my favorite Sentai to this day, and one of the few I've actually rewatched more than once.
I'm kinda bummed that Zyuohger and Kyoryuger didn't make it, since I really enjoyed those a lot as well, but Go-Busters was a solid series with an amazing villain I couldn't get enough of, so that'll take the third spot from me.

I only added first and second place winners to the poll.

BTW I chose TimeRanger, Shinkenger, and Go-Busters for my three. I just think their stories are amazing and they have such great characters to support them. No surprise that Kobayashi Yasuko was the main writer for all three!

Gekiranger and Gokaiger were almost given for me; the former particularly for its superb story and the latter for being fantastic in almost every aspect.

I was between Deka/Shinken/Gobus for my third vote but ended up going for Mega - I really enjoyed the characters in that one.

Liveman was also a great one, fairly dark and character driven.

EDIT: Time was great too. Just too many good options in this list!

I chose Timeranger, Gokaiger and Go-Busters. They just so happen to be my top 3 favorite sentai. Although, from what I've read during this tournament, that might change once I get around to wacthing Shinkenger.
We'll see.

As of current vote

Gokai - 19
Shinken - 16
Go-Busters - 9

Are the top three voted Sentai.

Despite not being almost the best, I do have attachment for Lupin VS Pat that I do not vote for Gokaiger. Shinkenger is a given for me, considering how Kobayashi Yasuko was the one wrote the story overall and it was one of the earliest Sentai series I watched after Go-Onger and become interested in Super Sentai. Its a shame that Toqger did not make it to semi finals because it is a good Sentai Series with proper background and arranged story. Its too underated.
My last vote can either be Time or Deka but I choose the latter because it does play around with deductions like police detectives did. While it is not as detailed and realistic like Detective Conan that focused on real facts, it is such an unforgettable series.

For me shinkenger was obvious first choice that quality of story and acting didn't happen again in my opinion. gekiranger was also one of my all time favorites and as sentai (I watched many power rangers since first season) it was one of the first i ever watched. Gokaiger was also a no-brainer choice for me since the acting was superb in that one as well (and i don't like pirate themes that much despite that gokaiger is one of my bests) I am amazed none of the ninja or dinosaur themed shows made into this list however since I enjoyed kyoryurangers alot as well and it would be conteding for a slot if it was presented.

I'm a little puzzled by the results so far. Gokaiger and Shinkenger had great casts and cool themes, but both of them suffered from an underwhelming overall story and bland villains. If Gokaiger hadn't had the tributes, cameos, and nostalgia value, I'm not sure I'd have voted for it; it was the first series I started watching, but not the first I finished; I got bored because the episodes had started to seem painfully formulaic.

I'd be more surprised by the absence of Kyoryuger, but I gather that although I loved it to bits, it was a pretty divisive show.

I don't even know how to evaluate Go-Busters, Kyuranger, and LvsP, the shows that tried something Really Different. The strong ending of LvsP very nearly made up for the filler that had preceded it. Even though Kyuranger suffered from Lucky and seemed not to know what to do with some of its characters, it had some seriously memorable stuff; the Scorpio arc was just terrific. I almost went with Go-Busters, but its core cast just didn't live up to better series.

Gekiranger was the only one that made it to the semi-finals that was just a given for me: great story, terrific villains, a cool theme, a surprisingly sleek main mecha, and that time they ripped off the "Thriller" dance... it held together as a whole better than most other Sentai I've seen. I will always want to scritch Master Shafu.

I ended up going for Geki, Gokaiger, and Kyuranger. It would'a been a little easier decision if some different Sentai had made it to this round.

Shinkenger was great and Gokaiger for the nostalgia.

Go-busters, i enjoyed it due to the heavy plot and a super resourceful villian. (One of the best villians). It was also a very different Sentai as compared to previous seasons.
