Voters in Chippewa County Call for a Constitutional Amendment

Chippewa County advisory referendum: Citizens United

“Should the United States Constitution be amended to state that only human beings, not corporations, unions or political action committees, are entitled to constitutional rights and that government regulation of political contributions and spending by corporations, unions or political action committees is therefore not equivalent to limiting freedom of speech?”

Yes: 4,911

No: 2,274
