It’s time again for the public to cast their ballots for the Marion County Development's annual Best of the Red Rock Area poll.

Where can you find the best breakfast? What are the top free things to do in the Red Rock Area? Which event does your family enjoy? Where is that memorable Instagram photo spot?

As in past years, MCDC asks residents and visitors to vote on the best Marion County has to offer in a variety of tourism categories. This year, they have changed things up to focus more on tourism with ten Top 10 lists and 22 categories. Results of the poll are used to help travelers and newcomers find out about amazing things to do in Marion County.

MCDC has an option for "other" under some of the categories, so if voters don't see an entity listed, they can vote for them under “other.” MCDC simply tallies all the votes together. They are using their web content under each category, so they realize there may be some entities listed that are not applicable to a category. To find what you are looking for, simply start typing, and entities that match will appear. The deadline for ballot submission is noon on Nov. 1, 2022.

Only one vote per email address is permitted for the poll. They appreciate in advance that voters play by the rules so the poll can be a true reflection of the area and not the result of ballot stuffing. MCDC will also be checking on the number of votes per person and allow only a maximum of two votes per person if participants have multiple email addresses. It is also required that participants complete at least 50% of the ballot for their vote to count. Participants must go through all the categories on the ballot in order to get to the “cast your vote” button. MCDC will not share information collected with any third parties.
