Now your answer will be vouchers, well the east coasters get to pocket even more money while we break even on a flight... Im going this year, but it wont be an every year event for me, mainly cause of the travel costs...
The problem is that while St Louis has a lot of fields and stores within a 6 hour drive, I bet DC has more. Most likely the location is just due to something as simple as field or population density.
Now, if your poll required people to pay to attend first
before you could vote, maybe it would have more validity...
