This is your daily reminder to Vote Bridge Street into the Top 25 of the America's Main Street Contest.
Last year, Bridge Street entered the competition with only ONE DAY to qualify for the semifinals; that means other competitors had up to a 60 day head start for collecting votes. Miraculously, even with an overwhelming deficit of voting time, we were able to make it to the TOP 5 in the finals! Can you imagine what we can accomplish this year? We were the first street to complete our nomination and have the entire 90 days to accumulate our votes this year. We need to take full advantage of our time and collect as many votes as possible to win the $25,000 prize for The Historic Ashtabula Harbor.
How does it work? You can vote once per day, per Wi-Fi signal and per phone carrier signal at www.mainstreetcontest.com/profile/1
What does that mean? It means you can vote once while you're at home, once at work, once at the grocery store or while you're waiting for your car at the dealership... anywhere that has Wi-Fi is an opportunity for a vote! It may tell you that you've already voted, but that just means someone else who supports our cause has already used that Wi-Fi for the day, so don't be discouraged and keep plugging away everywhere you visit throughout your day! You can also vote using your cell phone signal, so turn off your Wi-Fi for a second and get an extra vote in!
Where will the money go? The money will be spent on projects that will beautify our district including the anchor project installation and a script "Ashtabula" sign similar to the "Cleveland" sign.
If you have a hard time remembering when you last voted, just set an alarm on your phone, label it "Vote for Bridge Street!" and set it for a time that is most convenient for you.
Please take a moment to share this information with your friends, family, email databases, Facebook pages or in any way you can!
Last year's winner had over 300,000 votes, so we need all hands on deck, every day, in order to pull this off!
