The 2012 presidential election is still more than a year away.
But elections are won and lost in the months leading up to Election Day.
Starting today, Bolingbrook Patch will begin polling its readers to gauge their interest in the election, its candidates and what issues are most important to them. This poll will be published each week until the end election season.
And at the end of the Illinois primary (March 20) and general election (Nov. 8), we hope these numbers will provide insight into how attitudes and ideologies shifted throughout what seems sure to be a cutthroat political atmosphere.
