Share the ballot with your fans, and encourage them to vote for you early and often to give your business the best chance at winning.

The awards generated more than 75,000 votes in 2018, and spawned our Go-To Guide of local favorites, video and written content about finalists and winners, Out & About TV segments and more well into 2019.
