Another year's coming to a end, which means it's time for the Daily Camera to count down Boulder County's top news stories of 2012 -- and, keeping with tradition, we'd like your input as well.
As you can see from the list of the Top 10 most-viewed stories of 2012 on DailyCamera.com, our readers this year were very interested in news about the Flagstaff Fire, the sad saga of the University of Colorado's "falling bear" and CU's efforts to shut down the 4/20 smokeout on campus, among other topics.
Below, you'll a form that will allow you to vote for your choices for the year's most important news stories. You can vote for up to five selections on the included list, or add your own suggestions of stories we didn't include.
Voting will remain open until 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 19.
The Camera staff will select its picks for Top 10 news stories of the year, and will begin publishing those, along with our readers' choices, on Dec. 22, counting down to the top story of 2012, which will be unveiled on New Year's Eve.
