Bilingual ballots

(WOIO) - It is another unfunded federal mandate. An order from the Justice Department that election ballots be printed in both English and Spanish. 19 Action News did some digging and found it could cost a half million dollars.

It is money not budgeted that will have to come from either the county or the state. Both of whom are crying poor. But ultimately it comes from the taxpayers. The big question - is the cost worth the benefit?
