    Tesla/CT needs your assistance. Please go to this link for a poll addressing Tesla being able to sell in CT. Word on the street is that the dealers have skewed the votes. Presently it says 70% not in favor. We all know that can't be true. So please cast your vote and forward think link to any breathing person you know. One does not need to live in CT to cast vote.

    Help Tesla in CT

    Calling to all Floridians and any CT Snowbirds down there. There is a poll in the Hartford business journal about letting Tesla sell in CT and it has been hijacked by the dealers. Presently it shows 70% saying NO to allowing Tesla in CT.


    Please follow the link and cast your vote and put a comment in, though it might bode well to not mention that you live in FL.

    Thank you.

    Help Tesla in CT, vote in poll

    Hello fellow owners on the West Coast. There is a poll in a local business journal about allowing Tesla to sell in CT and it has been high jacked by the dealers. Presently it states 70% said NO. That is obviously not true. Please follow the link and cast your vote and leave a comment but leave out that you live in CA :wink:

    You don't have to be a resident to cast a vote.

    Thank you,

    Tesla/CT needs your help

    Hello fellow owners and would be owners,


    Those of us in CT and Tesla need your help. There is a polling in a local business journal dealing with allowing Tesla to sell in CT and it has been high jacked by the dealers. Presently it says 70% are not in favor which is obviously not true. Please follow the link below and also pass it along to anyone you know. You don't have to be a resident in CT to vote. Also please leave a comment, but I would leave out the part that you are not in CT :wink:


    Thanks

    Please vote in this Hartford Business Journal poll to allow Tesla sales in CT

    This was just posted over at TM Forums:

    There is a poll in a local business journal dealing with allowing Tesla to sell in CT. The poll is presently being hijacked by the dealers because it shows 70% against Tesla.

    Please go to the link below and cast a vote and leave a comment. One does not need to be a resident of CT to take the poll. I don't know what weight this poll will have, but every bit helps.

    Thanks,

    Just voted, but believe it or not two thirds have voted no. These polls seem to get very very votes and probably aren't worth much, but so be it.

    very hard to believe the number of "no" votes. Time for EV owners to out vote the NADA members...

    Something is wrong with this vote, I find it hard to beleive that most people would vote against this.

    You can probably vote from pc, mobile, starbucks as long as they have different IPs and you use incognito mode for no cookies.

    Is this poll even moving though? or is it archived?

    897 votes | 89 comments

    34.8%


    Edit: Now it says:

    878 votes | 87 comments

    33.5%

    Something is weird.

    Doug, I apologize, but I am just trying to get the word out to the largest number of people as possible. I didn't see any harm in doing so.

    Cool, that was a quick turnaround. It was 65% against when I voted less than 2 hours ago
