Dear Chris,

I have already received this announcement from ASPP headquarters and our campus
rep. and now realize that this poll is probably meaningless since you can vote
as many times as you wish.  In fact, you can simply push the "back" button on
your browser and just keep on voting.  Other side has probably figured this out
as well, which is probably why the results are close to 50-50.
