POLL: Should we keep daylight saving time?

It's that time of year again--the time to switch your clocks ahead an hour.

Daylight saving time starts at 2 a.m. Sunday.

The much dreaded time change is the subject of debate in several states this year that are considering doing away with the springing ahead and falling behind. 

New Hampshire is among them. There's a bill in the New Hampshire Legislature to switch from Eastern Time to Atlantic Standard Time if Massachusetts goes first. Rhode Island has a similar bill, to follow Massachusetts in the switch, along with Maine.

AST is used in parts of Canada, Greenland and the Caribbean. It's an hour ahead of the time we in the Upper Valley use in the winter. It would mean no more daylight saving time.

But there is no such bill in Vermont, which could get awkward for those of us who live, work and play in both states. 

What do you think? Take our poll. 

Should New Hampshire switch to Atlantic Standard Time?
