Don't be a ballot-box stuffer! Readers may nominate the same business in no more than three categories. Make no mistake, we WILL toss out any ballots that go over that limit.

In that same vein—we can tell when you purchase votes from overseas—don't do it. It's a waste of money and bad karma.

Spread the word and encourage your customers to vote for you!
