Businesses With Giveaways For Voting Are Breaking The Law

Businesses in Illinois that tie giveaways to voting on Tuesday will be breaking the law.

The Illinois Election Code bans people from offering anything of monetary value to entice voting — even if it is not for a particular candidate.

That kind of giveaway is a class 4 felony in the state.
