Should the Freeholders -- who are looking at ways to make county government work better -- consider two-year terms for county commissioners?

Yes. Four-year terms are too long. If voters make a mistake by electing the wrong person, it would be nice to be able to correct that mistake after two years. (43.59% - 85 votes)

No. When politicians have to run every two years it seems like they're always in campaign mode. (54.36% - 106 votes)
