Wow! You're right. Editing the poll deleted all the votes. I was able to edit the poll last time and it preserved the votes. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!!!

Yes, everyone needs to vote again it seems. I'm really sorry guys.

No problem, Chris.....but do you think we could get something started here in voting for governments??? It would certainly add a little pizzazz to German elections (which usually attract only 50% of the voters at best). :)

Oblivion, turnout here in the states is not very impressive either. But here I think we are dealing with a general feeling among the people that politics is completely and utterly corrupt. Voting sometimes doesn't feel worth our time.

Six people for Ev Psych, not bad.

I think there were a bunch of people who voted for the Johnstown book (I wasn't one of them), but maybe they want to get a chance to vote it up.
