There are several categories available on the ballot such as, best antique shop, best heating and air service, best sweet tea, best tire store, and best pharmacy to name a few.

Voting in the Readersí Choice Award is simple. A ballot will be placed in each edition of The Tomahawk leading up to the announcement of the results in the February 25th edition.
