I would like the extra hour of daylight at the end of a workday during the winter months.

I also prefer daylight after work as opposed to in the morning.

Yes, get rid of it! So annoying to have to switch times, get use to new sleep habits for a few months. Just stay with one time or the other, though DST would be the best time to keep.

I don't like readjusting my body schedule, yearly.

I can get more done when it stays light outside longer.

Jumping back and forth doesn't make any sense and it messes with everyone for a month after

I love the extended daylight. It also makes me feel safer when walking to the train after work.

I don't care if we keep it or get rid of it -- just keep it one way all year.

Like the old Indian commented, "white man only person who cut off one end of blanket - sew it on the other end of blanket in hopes to make it longer..." Sunlight is sunlight - regardless of the time.

The time changes mess with my body for at least a week. Plus it is well documented there are higher rates of ER visits, heart attacks, and car wrecks around the time change. I

Get rid of "daylight savings time". Our bodies need sunshine in the morning to wake up. The extra daylight in the evening only makes me stay indoors. Sunset is too late to enjoy being outdoors.

If only this poll would change something. I'm guessing the majority of people voted 'no.' Do you post the results of this?

Standard time. I need the sun in the morning. More apt to get up in a good mood and with no complaints

Like the saying has been shared around: why take an hour from the end of the day and move it to the beginning only to have to do it the other way around later? Just leave it alone already!

The time change adds excitement to our lives, and makes the spring time that much more of a relief. :)

I think we should keep it on "normal" time all year round.

Get rid of it altogether. It's a dated concept.
