How can I encourage customers to vote for my business?

Use your imagination to spread the word. Share the link to the electronic ballot on social media, display signs in your business, and include our Best of Mississippi Travel authorized graphics in advertising.

Can I or my employees fill out ballots on our customers’ behalf by using their email addresses?

No. Only an individual who owns an email account may complete and submit a ballot. If more than 10 ballots are submitted from the same computer (IP address), all ballots from that computer will be voided.
