City seeks votes

as best small town

New Berlin — New Berlin Mayor Dave Ament is encouraging residents to cast their votes for New Berlin in the Rand McNally Best of the Road program searching for the Best Small Towns in America.

People all over the country are being asked to vote for the small towns that everyone should visit. This year a new website featuring a simple path to registration and easy voting features is available. Voting will take place through Sept. 3.

There are six categories – Most Beautiful, Most Fun, Most Patriotic, Friendliest, Best for Food and Best for Geocaching.

Voters are logging on to: Voters may submit a short review of the small town and/or post photos or videos through various social media platforms. The content and activity on these social media sites will be a factor in judging.

Only one vote will be accepted per small town per voter in a 24 hour-period. Votes also are category specific, so a vote for a small town in one category will preclude any other votes from the same voter for that same small town during the same 24 hour period.
