CNBC has its Top States for Business special report underway, culminating this afternoon with the unveiling of the No. 1 state for business (my guess is Oregon). Each state gets points for cost of doing business, workforce, quality of life, infrastructure and transportation, economy, education, technology & innovation, business friendliness, access to capital and cost of living.
Good scores on the report — hugely important to the marketing of every state — has Governors buzzing around the country.
But they’re not the only ones talking about it. The Top States for Business Twitter Battle has state residents voting to put some oomph behind their home states. Click on the link to vote for your state. Currently, Iowa is leading and Wisconsin is in second. The Twitter Battle is a great attempt by CNBC to educate and involve viewers about how each state is doing.
So vote, tweet, and learn more about your state at the same time! It’s good for business.
