“Answer Text”,”Vote Count”
“Yes”,”93″
“No”,”76″
“Undecided”,”6″

After five weeks, trying to publish it in a good many areas, to give fair access. The Yes for the project, is the majority. I meant to only run it four weeks, but didn’t know how to get in to close it. Unfortunately, the free version doesn’t allow me to detect fraud. That is a minimum of $200 per year. Look on the bright side, I can only reset the results, not edit them.

Maybe I can reuse a quote the opposition used, “the people have voted”.

Do I feel that way? No for many reasons. Despite a much better response, it still will not reflect the public. Too small a sample of people, vs population. Maybe this is another reflection of blog vs newspaper in readership? What does it reflect? I feel it reflects the online community, who choose to respond. Other reasons, it isn’t a scientific poll response. With our loss of newspapers, will we lose our scientific polling of the communities on issues?

For saftey fix some curves or use traffic lights with a 1 1/2 lane as it is now (project calls for road widening because it is a tight 2 lane road if that). DONT remove redwoods that are big and dont impact roots, rip-up pavement. Use the RXR
