A question on ballots Nov. 4 will ask whether Illinois should convene a constitutional convention. By law, the question must be asked of voters every 20 years, a story in Monday's Sun explains.
Supporters, like Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn, say the convention is needed to address such issues as recall of elected officials and same-sex marriage. Opponents, like law professor Ann Lousin, say the state's constitution is fine, that its problems have to do with lawmakers not getting along.
A convention could cost $78 million, Lousin says, while Quinn says it could be done for $23 million.
Who do you believe? How are you going to vote on Nov. 4 (or earlier, if you vote early)? Does Illinois need a constitutional convention?
