VOTING IS NOW CLOSED. Thanks for playing.
With Round One of our Readers' Choice Small Business Tournament behind us, it is time to start narrowing down our first round winners to determine Merrimack Patch Readers' favorite business in town.
In round one, we asked you to choose winners from categories of businesses in a related category. This round, we're taking three winners at a time and asking you to vote for the business you think provides the best public service.
One important change for Rounds Two and Three: You will have only three days to vote in each category. Voting for the first three of our 12 businesses ends at noon on Wednesday, so don't delay.
This period, your voting options are:
VOTING RULES: Post the name of the small business you think should win that week in comments field near the bottom of this page. Voting begins on Monday at 5 a.m. and runs through Wednesday at noon. We will announce the weekly winner early on Wednesday afternoon. Please post only one vote each week. Votes will only be counted if they are made in the comments section of this story. Votes posted on Facebook and Twitter unfortunately cannot be counted. Voting results posted in real time shall not be deemed official until Patch has reviewed and confirmed all of the votes.
BREAKING A TIE: Each of these businesses also has a listing in our directory where Patch users can rate and review them. In the event of a tie, the winner with the most spot reviews will win. So when you have a couple of free minutes, make sure to click on the link for the business of your choice and write them a quick review. Each of the links above brings you to that business' listing. If you have already written a review of the business you're voting for, it will count. We are looking a cumulative reviews.
Good luck and have fun!
