You Made the Retail Vote Count

Thank you for going to the polls Tuesday, June 3, and casting your ballots for candidates who are right for retailers.

You truly made the retail vote count with 93 percent of our endorsed candidates, either elected outright, as party nominees or in runoffs.

Our association is 4,000 members strong, so our VOICE and our VOTE makes a difference when ballots are counted.
