Time has almost run out to pick your 'Star Wars' favorites

Today is the last day to vote online in our "Star Wars" Readers Poll, in which you can register your love or loathing for certain "Star Wars" characters and scenes, as we count the days before "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones" arrives in theaters May 16.

Click here to vote. Results will be published sometime before George Lucas sends in "The Clones."
