The Hometown Showdown tournament has officially begun! Starting on Thursday, March 1, 2018, you can cast your vote for the best location, amenity, or facility in each district.

In the spirit of March’s biggest pastime, bracket making, we want to find out what the most popular spots are in each Senate District, so we are hosting a Hometown Showdown tournament where you can vote for your favorites. You all submitted your feedback telling us what the best locations are where you live – and now it’s time to vote for the final winner!

The competition will kick-off off with the “Elect Eight,” containing the eight contenders in each district then will move on to the “Fabulous Four” and finally the “Top Two” will go head-to-head to be crowned the district’s most popular location!

Here are the following dates each round will take place:
