NBC 5 on Thursday released the third episode of "The Illinois Voters' Guide," its new podcast on the 2020 general election.
This week's episode is a look at the graduated income tax proposal on every ballot across Illinois, giving listeners a breakdown of what they need to know about the constitutional amendment to change the state from a flat tax to a graduated rate.
NBC 5's Phil Rogers talks with NBC 5 political editor Carol Marin and NBC 5 political reporter Mary Ann Ahern about the issue - what it is, who's supporting and opposing it and much more.
Released every Thursday ahead of Election Day, "The Illinois Voters' Guide" examines contests and issues about which voters will be making decisions when they fill out their ballots.
In part one, Marin and Ahern discussed the high-profile and contentious race for Cook County State’s Attorney. In part two released last week, digital producer Shelby Bremer highlights some of the biggest races happening across the state this election cycle.
