As the national election gets closer it’s hard not to think of how you’ll vote this November, but locally in the Wabash Valley another important election is in full swing: the Trib Star Reader’s Choice.

Every year the Chamber of Commerce is excited to see the numerous Chamber businesses represented on the Reader’s Choice ballot and this year is no exception.

To assist you in your voting we have compiled a master list to highlight each Chamber member. Please support your fellow Chamber members.

Happy Voting!
