Andrew Jackson soon could be gone from the $20 bill, replaced by abolitionist Harriet Tubman.

Jackson County is named after Andrew Jackson. The move to wipe him off the $20 bill gives local residents a chance to think about renaming the county after someone with the same last name — but with a better reputation.
King County, home to Seattle in Washington, did something similar years ago.
Hence, this poll. The deadline is 6 p.m. Thursday. Mobile users go here.
Don’t like those ideas?
Add your suggested new name for Jackson County in the comments section. I’ve already seen Truman County and Royals County, so that’s for starters.
I will report back later this week on your views.
