Poll tally

Below is the GeoHipster poll tally as of noon EST on January 24, 2014. The poll has received 1,106 responses from 253 users. We thank all who viewed, voted, and/or provided suggestions.

We realize that some poll items (GeoHipster attributes) have been posted longer than others, and thus have had greater opportunity to receive votes. This (along with many other things) makes the poll totally unscientific. Still, we think it is fun.

The poll is now closed.
