The Pella Chronicle posts an online poll on our website, pellachronicle.com. Each week we feature a different question. Answers from the online poll will be featured in the following week's opinion page in the Chronicle. Each week's question will also be featured in the Chronicle for those who would like to call in their answer instead of filling out the online poll. To call in your answer to the weekly poll, dial 641-628-3882. All polling answers for that week will stop being collected at 4 p.m. the Monday before publication.
