What is the minimum voting age?

You must be 18 years or older to vote. 

Are there a minimum number of categories I am required to vote in?

Yes, you need to vote in at least 10 categories for your voting to count!

What if I don’t see who/what I want to vote for within a category?

At the bottom of every voting category is an option to “write-in” a name or business – once that particular business receives 10 votes it will automatically appear as a voting option for all to see.

Can I change my vote if I change my mind?

Yes, of course! You can change your vote as many times as you’d like UNLESS you cast a write-in vote. All write-in votes are final, so make sure your vote is correct before hitting "enter"! 

If I registered last year, will my password still work?

No, you will need to create a new login and password. We have a brand new, more efficient, and more fun website this year to make the voting experience even better than ever!
