"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

Carole Lovejoy, Franklin, homemaker
