Helpful instructions from Madison Magazine:

Voters are allowed one vote per day, per category using one email address. (Don’t use fake emails or multiple ones; that’s just not cool.) We will invalidate your entry if we see you spamming the ballot. You’ll get one warning, and if it happens again, we’ll have to disqualify the votes attached to your email address. But that’s not to say that you shouldn’t get out the vote! We can even help you with that by clicking here.

As for qualifying businesses, we include only Dane County businesses. We don’t allow non-Wisconsin-born franchises or corporations. Have we mentioned we love local at Madison Magazine?

You do not need to submit your ballot when you are done voting. Each individual vote is counted when you hit vote next to each business.
