Online Poll: Wind turbines off Monhegan

Mar 10, 2017

This week we are asking:

"Do you support locating large floating wind turbines off Monhegan for a 20-year project?"

The U.S. Department of Energy is gathering comments from the public as it considers locating two tall, floating wind turbines 2.5 miles south of Monhegan. Some argue this is the next step in promoting renewable energy while others are concerned it will adversely affect fish and fishermen in the region. Where do you stand?

See attached chart for results from last week's poll in which a wide margin favor requiring photo identification at the polls in elections.

Participation in On The Line polls is free and anonymous. You must visit or to take our latest poll.

Results appear first in the newspaper and are published online each Thursday at 11 a.m.

I also tried to vote ... finally gave up and e-mailed my vote with a suggestion to make sure voters can vote. I assume this was NOT voter suppression .. :)

I hope this gets set up again as whatever results you realized must NOT be accurate.  I would be interested to see the results of this poll.

There's more than one "button" that doesn't work on the new format.

I don't like the polls, but the times when I consider responding to them, the buttons do not work, like now.  And, "No."  (and there is nothing wrong or strange about this computer).
