The Rules

How does voting work?

It’s pretty simple, throughout the year we have a ‘Featured Vote’ on our home page to encourage voting in a particular category.  As a voter, you can simply vote in that category or at any time click on the VOTE box in each business listing (visit or FAQ for more information).  Once you are in the voting area you will see a list of all the businesses listed under that sub-category you can vote for.  Click on the checkbox in front of the business you would like to select as the LocalBest for that sub-category and hit submit on the bottom.  You can vote in additional areas by selecting the sub-category on the left you would next like to vote in.  You may vote in as many sub-categories as you would like but once you place a vote it cannot be changed!  You can always come back and vote in categories you have not voted in until the end of that year's voting.  At the end of the voting period, votes will be counted and results will be listed online.  The top winners of each category will be featured and recognized as being voted LocalBest!
We need your HELP!  Each year thousands of businesses start-up, move, or close.  We try to keep our data as accurate as possible so if you see an error in a listing or your favorite business is not listed please let us know by sending an email to and once verified we will add/change/remove listings as needed.


How do reviews work?


Any member can submit one review per business per year.  You can review as many businesses as you would like but you must follow our review guidelines.  You must also live within the selected area of that business to leave a review.  This is to protect from bogus reviews and ratings and will be used to determine what geographical area you are allowed to vote in.  Membership is limited to one per email address and one per phone number.

User membership is FREE to anyone who meets and follows our requirements.  We take our rules very seriously and anyone caught cheating or in violation of our rules may have their account (including business information) suspended or removed along with a block placed on their phone number and email address.  For more information or to dispute a block please email with your name and phone number.  Thanks for choosing!
