    Looks like you can vote as many times as you like.

    A related article https://alextimes.com/2020/02/seminary-road-update/ makes for grim reading, Quote: Jackson alluded that Pepper would be the swing vote if there’s a vote at the Feb. 11 meeting. “I don’t know if my motion will have the four votes needed, to tell you the truth,” Jackson said. “We are still working on at least one councilmember, of course, and it is the one who we didn’t think anyone had to work on because she’s been fighting for the West End for 34 years”...as if the road diet isn't for the benefit of residents.

    The poll is confusing, the order of the options is not the same when looking at the result as shown in your picture. I selected the same option as you(the one with the check mark).

    A reminder again about the poll - plus, as noted, T&ES will be presenting results to Council this Wednesday, and its possible there will be a bill introduced to reverse the changes.

    Highlights of the City staff presentation include the following:

    1. Traffic analysis indicates that Seminary Road is working about as well as it did before (or better) on average. During a 15-minute period in the morning, west bound traffic experiences a delay of up to about a minute, on mid-week days (Tues., Wed., and Thurs.)

    2. There has been one reportable traffic crash since implementation (30 Oct), compared to 2-1-0-2 crashes in the comparable periods in the last four years

    3. Both AFD and APD agree that appropriate measures have been put in place for emergency responders to safely travel before, during and after an emergency call

    If you live in Alexandria, please also consider contacting Council members before Tuesday to share your positive experiences with Seminary Road and ask that the road be left as is. You can contact the Mayor and Council members via this link: http://bit.ly/MayorandCouncil

    The order of the choices was different when I did the poll vs when my wife did. I wonder if it's its an attempt to dissuade someone from setting up a robot or some sort of macro to vote 1,000x or something.

    Hopefully simple things like that work for now.

    Tuesday, you mean. The 11th.

    Also the City has a new service request system; here's a more direct link: https://www.alexandriava.gov/request/CNC_GROUP

    I went looking for this poll last night on the paper's site. Couldn't find it.

    Best of fortune tonight at the Council meeting. I'll be with you in spirit, as we will be at the Columbia Pike/ANC road project presentation, also this evening.
