Voters and referendums
PRINCETON — Bureau County registered voters will have their say in not only the presidential, state and local races on Nov. 6, but they will also be asked whether to amend the state constitution regarding the required vote needed to make changes in any public pension or retirement system.
The state referendum would require a three-fifths vote of each chamber of the General Assembly or the governing body of a unit local government, school district or pension or retirement system, in order to increase a benefit under any public pension or retirement system. Currently, a simple majority vote can make the change. The proposed amendment, if approved by voters, would take effect on Jan. 9, 2013.
In addition to the one state referendum, registered voters in Wyanet and Tiskilwa will also be asked to vote whether to approve electricity aggregation for their villages.
