Rules for the Red Hot Best of Northern Michigan
MyNorth Media will consider one session of nominating and/or voting per email address. Additional nominations or votes from a single email address won't count. Voters may vote or nominate in all 100 categories, just a few categories or only one. If participants don't fill in every category, MyNorth Media will give them a chance to fill in any blank categories or continue to submit. Once submitted, that email address will no longer be able to nominate or vote during the Red Hot Best process.
Participants may nominate candidates by writing in candidates in each category through Friday, March 15. MyNorth Media will sift through these write-in candidates regularly and include appropriate nominations on the ballot as the nominating continues. Nominations will be closed Friday, March 15, 2013 at midnight.
Voting begins on Friday, February 15th. Participants nominate and vote for candidates online. No nominations will be accepted after Friday, March 15, 2013. Voting ends on Friday, March 15, 2013 at midnight. Votes or nominations for candidates that don't meet the requirements of the category will be discarded. For example, votes for a restaurant in the Best Soup category will be discarded if that restaurant doesn't offer soup on the menu.
As a benefit of participating, all nominators and voters will receive free e-newsletters from MyNorth Media including, Food & Wine, Outdoors, Getting Up North and MyNorth Style. MyNorth Media will not share, rent or sell email addresses to any party. Subscribers can unsubscribe from any of these emails at any time or re-subscribe at MyNorth.com/newsletters MyNorth Media occasionally will share advertising messages with our newsletter subscribers.
