As many of you know from my previous poll I am putting together a graph for deadouts and the sources they came from. Because of the limitations of the polling feature of the forum I have decided to convert it to an email survey. The directions are at the top of the survey. The results will be posted on blogger in May.
If you wish to participate please copy and paste the survey into an email and send your results back to me. Save your copy so you can make changes as needed.
