Regular visitors to The Columbian’s website know there’s a weekly poll, put up by Editor Lou. Last week the question was about the Vancouver City Council, and this week’s question was about the Clark County Board of Commissioners. Editor Lou noticed today there has been a sudden surge of votes for Republican David Madore, who before the email below was sent, was neck-and-neck with Big Stu, a Big D. Here’s the email sent out by the local Republican party, and to go to the poll, click here.
Love how the author cautions people not to vote twice. Sign your names multiple times on an official petition, sure, but vote twice in an unscientific poll? Heavens, no!
