I really could use your help in getting the word out about this contest. All you have to do is click on this link, answer 8 questions (you don’t even have to be correct!) and enter your Name/Email address/City, State and Zip Code.  Every entry counts as a vote for Gloucester as long as that is what you enter at the end of the questions! You don’t even have to live here to vote for our city. Gloucester, MA 01930 is the only thing that you need to know to get the vote in for the city.
