Ballots in the Nov. 3 election will include a question about whether to change the state's income tax system from a flat-rate to a graduated structure. 

Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker and other proponents call it the “fair tax” because it demands more from those with higher incomes. Those making less than $250,000 a year would pay no more than the current 4.95% flat rate.

Opponents point to the state's history of political corruption, saying the proposal on the November ballot would loosen constitutional restraints on lawmakers' spending.
