  • Any nominated business found to have used a third-party service to unfairly influence their vote count will be immediately disqualified (please be aware of potential scammers who may solicit your business for this purpose).
  • Any nominated businesses offering discounts, gift certificates or other monetary rewards to customers in exchange for Best Of votes will be immediately disqualified.
