Younger Elvis or older Elvis?

It's your call

April 07, 1992

The U.S. Postal Service is conducting a vote through midnight April 24 on which of two Elvis Presley likenesses should grace a 1993 stamp, the first ever to honor a rock 'n' roll singer. One features a young Elvis Presley from about 1955; the other Elvis as he was in 1973. The singer died in 1977.

Some 10 million ballots are available at mail stations and in People magazines in the first effort by the Post Office to hold a public vote on a stamp.

The Evening Sun would like to know which likeness you would prefer on a stamp. The Elvis of 1955? The Elvis of 1973?

To register your opinion, call SUNDIAL at 783-1800 (or 268-7736 in Anne Arundel County) today through midnight. After you hear the greeting, you'll be asked to punch in a four-digit code on your touch-tone phone. Punch 4600 and you'll be connected with "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's phone survey on topical issues.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

Look for the results in tomorrow's Evening Sun.
