Voters To Weigh In On Five Ballot Measures
(Springfield, IL) -- Voters are weighing in on several ballot measures when they head to the polls today. One would ensure that crime victims have a voice in court while the other would ensure that people aren't discriminated against when it comes to their right to vote. People will also be asked whether the minimum wage should be raised to ten-bucks-an-hour, if insurance companies should be required to pay for birth control, and if people who make more than one-million-bucks should pay more in taxes to fund education. The last three measures are advisory questions only and lawmakers won't be required to act no matter how people vote.
