You Asked, We Answered

There is a lot that goes into Best of Milford. Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions:

1. What is the Best of the Milford?
The Best of the Milford is a celebration of the best Milford has to offer– as voted by the readers of Milford Living Magazine and the greater Milford community.

2. How do you determine Best of Milford winners?
Business register in dozens of categories, through an online ballot. Registrations are accepted from May 15, 2020 through July 15, 2020. Then, we advance to the SECOND part of the competition: the voting round! It runs from August 1 – August 30, 2020. The businesses receiving the most votes are deemed the year's Best of Milford winners.

3. How many times can I vote for a business?

4. How can I promote my business to get votes?
We will provide a Best of Milford voting toolkit with graphics and marketing tips.

5. I'm having trouble registering. What do I do?
When you start your registration in the first category of your choice, you will be asked to fill out the registration form. When you complete this step, you will be registered and you can continue registering your business on the ballot.

If you have trouble with that process, we would suggest trying a different browser and device.

6. How do I find out who all the winners are?
Winners will be announced in the fall issue of Milford Living Magazine and honored at the Best of Milford gala on September 30, 2020 at the Milford Yacht Club.
