Democrats in Madison County are hosting a straw poll next week, coinciding with the straw poll in Iowa.  Organizers have scheduled events at seven venues around the county on February 1, and will be based on the rules used in Iowa.

Rachelle Crowe, Working Committee Member tells The Big Z at each location attendees will go to areas designated to support their particular candidate.
