Vote by May 23, 2021!

How to vote

  • Vote for at least 5 categories.
  • Verify ballot by responding to confirmation email.
  • Only one ballot per person.

Write-in Voting

If your favorite is not on the ballot, please write in your choice. After enough write-ins, the business will be added to the list.

Chain Stores

The contest is intended to celebrate outstanding local and independent businesses, and therefore retail chain stores or franchise operations are not eligible and are not listed on the ballot in the retail categories. We're sorry if this means your favorite is missing.

Business Owners

If your business is not found under a category which you believe it should be listed in, please email a request to [email protected]

Get your business ready!
