Get polled. It won't hurt a bit.
I've posted a poll in the sidebar. Go cast your vote. Let's see how it goes.
**UPDATE** I managed to mess up this first attempt at a poll by including someone who doesn't live in the district in the list. (DUH!) Consequently, I'm fixing that problem, which made it necessary to post a new poll, which means it's all starting from zero again. (Sorry about that.)
When I took the last poll down, Dennis Ahern had a commanding lead (200 and something votes) over second place Porter McNeil. I've also fixed a glitch that may have allowed some to vote more than once. That only works in Chicago. With people unable to game the system and vote repeatedly, it will be interesting to see if Ahern again piles up over 200 votes in a matter of hours when the average number of visits to the site in a 24 hour period is less than that.
So to those of you who had already voted, my apologies, but please vote again. And to those who hadn't, go vote.
I plan to post a similar poll with possible candidates for the 72nd District in the near future. (As well as others) So in the meantime, feel free to continue to suggest who should be included in that list. So far, we have Darrow and O'Brien, and of course, Vershoore.
