both business and residencial divisions votes will be cast by members
of the general public. We ask both local and visiting persons to go to
our website to download the map of registered locations, then make a
tour around the area to view as many sites as you can, and then cast
your ballot. We do ask that voters rank their top three choices in each
division. Ballots are due by Wednesday, December 29th, and can be cast
at cohase.org/winter-lights. The announcement of the winners will occur in the new year.
