Pioneer to Run Straw Polls

The Amarillo Pioneer is running planning to run straw polls ahead of the May election.

To gauge support for candidates in the upcoming May election, The Pioneer will be running two straw polls. The first poll will be held in February, and the second will be held in mid-April.

"The hope is that voters can show which candidates they prefer to give a sense of what direction this election will head in." said Delene Warren, assistant editor at The Amarillo Pioneer.

Delene will compile results at the end of each straw poll and will present them in articles in The Amarillo Pioneer and online.

Readers who are interested in participating in the straw poll can do so by visiting The Amarillo Pioneer's Facebook page (
