Hope this isn't a repost but I didn't see it anywhere...

In the lower right, on the front page of the Denver Post website.

http://www.denverpost.com/index.html

(Note, there's a possibility that the poll will have closed by the time you hit the site; I don't have a direct link)

Note this is FOR or AGAINST the amendment/ballot initiative to overturn HB-1224.
This is not "for or against" 1224.

So if you want to get RID of 1224, vote FOR.
Not a legal 'anything', but anything that can be pointed to for public sentiment helps our case.

Thanks!

Done! Thanks for the link, look at the percentage that oppose the bill, right now it's over 80%. Where do these ass holes get the notion they represent the people of Colorado?

Interesting. "Our" percentage (the for-overturn) is suddenly diving... (the against overturn is suddenly surging)... Have to wonder about this.... Did a group out there take notice? hmm...

EDIT: Still sinking, at 100 or so votes a minute; someone's definitely got a cute little script running. Neither side was voting at this pace since the vote began, until about an hour ago.

Have actually figured out the pace. The "pro-1224" votes are rising at just a bit over 1 per second, constant pace. Anti-1224 is sporadic but still coming in... so yeah, these definitely are not legit votes. In 4 hours, at this pace, the poll will probably reach 50/50.

Also there were only ~10k votes in the CCW on campus poll, this does look strange.

Ha! That might be my fault! I found a Yahoo "News" story about Colorado passing these and for the first time commented. Didn't want the world thinking these were supported by Coloradans. Some troll touted polls that showed how oh-so-many of us wanted these laws. I mentioned as part of my counter that polls can be worded and targeted to provide any result you want and included that the Denver Post now had a poll showing 80% support for repeal. And suddenly the numbers go down.... Interesting....

It got blitzed hard last night for the"against" position... when looked at it it was 59% For, it is now 47%, and still dropping...

I actually did something quite nerdish last night as I wasn't sleepy and had some time to burn. I started tracking the poll at 00:01:00 minute increments (or as close as possible). Several screenshots later, I was able to to an excel spreadsheet showing that the "keep the ban" vote was increasing at ~26 votes per minute consistently over 20 minutes. So yea, it was being hacked/scripted. Three other polls in the screen-shots were fairly steady, if not moving for most of the time. I was a bit surprised to see the poll this morning, as the "get rid of the ban" had jumped significantly. ???!!!

And this is what they will report as soon as the poll is closed:

67.8% responded they are for a magazine ban.

The poll is "for" repealing the ban. It's a poorly worded poll - sets up sort of a double negative. What he's saying is that news agencies will simply put that 67% are FOR the ban - leaving out the "repeal" part.

Poll is still up. Poorly worded (likely their intent), but "For" was hit. It's OK to use several browsers, right?
Link Posted: 3/17/2013 2:34:40 PM EDT
Only if you use the 'clear cookies' option between switching browsers. Gives better endurance for long time.

It was posted on facebook a bunch, via Magpul and others. I imagine word spread and people voted.

65133 For OVERTURNING the ban - 70.34% as of this morning.
