Get out the vote! Cañon City is one of the last six towns standing for a chance to receive a makeover and feature on season four of TV show "Small Business Revolution - Main Street."

The community was one of more than 12,000 nationwide to apply for the show. It has now beaten out thousands of communities to be among the five other finalists: Cames, Washington; Corsicana, Texas; Durant, Oklahoma.; Searcy, Arkansas.; and Washington, North Carolina.

On its website, Deluxe explains the concept of the show:

"Along the way, we learned that nowhere are small businesses more under siege than in our small towns. We created the 'Small Business Revolution – Main Street' to help those small businesses, and in turn, those small towns, reignite the spark that drives them and keeps people coming back. Each season, we search for one lucky town – and six of its small businesses – to win a $500,000 boost from Deluxe, and document the transformations in an original series. Season 1 featured Wabash, Indiana, in the heart of the Midwest. Season 2 featured historic East Coast river town, Bristol Borough, Pennsylvania. Season 3 features Alton, Illinois, a beautiful town on the Mississippi River, just outside of St. Louis."

Voting is open from Feb. 12-19. Individuals are allowed to vote once a day. Click here to vote.

The series airs on Hulu.
