ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says his hair is growing back after treatment for cancer, and he's asked the public to vote on whether he should continue the "bald look" or return to "flowing locks."

Earlier this week, the governor used Facebook to solicit opinions. More than 1,000 people have weighed in and the governor says opinion is mixed.

Hogan, a Republican, announced earlier this year that he had been diagnosed with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma and would undergo chemotherapy. Last month, he announced he's "in complete remission."

The governor says that on the issue of his hair there's one vote that carries more weight: his wife's. But she told him she likes both looks and he should pick. He told television station WMAR (http://bit.ly/1lBed5m ): "I think we're going to grow it."
