Your Ballot

Later this month, PolitiFact will announce our Lie of the Year -- the most significant falsehood of 2011, as chosen by our editors and reporters. We're examining claims we've rated False or Pants on Fire and will choose the one that played the biggest role in the national discourse in 2011.

We're also inviting PolitiFact readers to vote for the coveted Readers' Choice award.

Please vote below for one of the 10 possibilities, or write in another answer.
