---- — "Absolutely, because I like to complain and need to vote in order to do that."

Jody Dyer, Laurens, medical office

"Yes, but I usually don't vote locally. I'm voting this year since I'm family friends with one of the candidates."

Mark Peace, Oneonta, sales

"Absolutely. Hydrofracking is such a major issue; I hope to find candidates that are against it, and one that does more for the farmers. They can't afford farming _ so many of them are supporting it as a way to make money."

Jonathan Cresp, Hartwick, registered nurse

"No, I actually haven't voted since 2008 in the presidential election. I don't spend enough time researching the candidates, and it would just be picking a name out of a hat for me."

Yvette Yancey, Davenport, secretary

"Yes, I will vote. The local issues are the ones that affect me the most."

Carole Lovejoy, Franklin, homemaker
