Seeing the "poll" numbers go up by hundreds in the span of 30 minutes, first one side, then the other makes it clear that both sides are sitting at their collective computers voting dozens, if not hundreds of times a piece. This isn't a "poll", it a test of endurance for each side. Rick - this is, I think, the third time you have run this poll getting thousands of page hits. Is this the Patch trying to ascertain some "truth" or a naked attempt to get more page views and show relevance? Could this be your reason for putting up these meaningless polls? http://jimromenesko.com/2012/02/08/patch-to-reduce-staff-change-editorial-focus/

That article makes me feel bad for Rick. He's a true, old-school journalist being forced to associate with some real ding-a-lings.

Go Mr. Lauzen! Best of Luck to you on Primary Day! You have my vote! it is time us taxpayers break up the Burns Boy kinship! We realize he is all for himself along with appointing his comrades and raising our taxes!

Chris Lauzen is the best choice for Kane County. He has personal principals that drive his policy points. It is not necessary for a voter to agree with every policy point. What we need is a smart honest guy who acts consisently on public policy issue. With Burns you get a tawdary ego unconcerned with the people...just his over sized ego. The email affair pulled back the curtain of local pols who are filled with comtempt and even hate for those who dare ask them pointed questions. All the this attitude from a ' professional manager' who had an employ stealing tax pay money from Geneva. These matters usually indicate lax financial controls and who how many more thefts will after the election. Another proud moment for Burns who failed to manage ' Mayberry RFd' known in many circles as. our own l ittle Geneva. Great work Burns! Now that we have seen the dirty dealing Burns in action......allowing to manage a 300 Million Budget at Kane County is just folly.

Wow! I hope voter turnout is LARGE tomorrow! I'd hate to think these important local elections were decided by the polarized few!
