Bernthal – Please Read Before You Vote

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - When voters head to the polls they're not just casting votes for candidates but they're also voting on issues.

This year there are a number of measures that might catch some voters off guard.

For example some conservatives are upset with Secretary of State Robin Carnahan for the ballot language surrounding Proposition E, a measure related to health care exchanges.

Some say the language shows a clear bias against the measure that's essentially a referendum on President Obama's Health Care plan.

Here's the problem. Voters are not given a chance to read the full measure when they're voting.  They're only allowed to read a summary.

We should provide voters as much information as possible.

So if you're voting in this primary, take the time to read the full ballot measures before you head to the booth.

They're available on line at KPLR-11 dot com.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
