Here we go again!  Thank you Northland!  Your votes and sharing on social media has kept the City of Duluth in the running to be named "Best Town in America".  The contest, being run by Outside Magazine, started with 64 towns vying for the honors and now we are down to the just eight.  Time to vote!

Let's recap, Duluth was up against Columbia, MO, in first round of the contest's Midwest part of the bracket and earned 15,512 votes to just 3,463.  In round two Duluth took on Athens, OH and won in a landslide of 23,541 to 6,330 vote.  The next town we took down was La Crosse, WI, with a 26,958 to 14,867 final tally.  We're gonna need you now more than ever, we're up against Minneapolis.  This round of voting is open now through 10:59 p.m. (local time) on Tuesday, June 3, 2014.

It won’t take much time and it’s simple to do! Here’s how:

You may vote once per round for each matchup. The winners will advance until only two towns remain. Then there will be a seven-day showdown to determine Outside’s Best Town 2014. The winner will be the town with the most votes on June 15.
