Officials say Illinois will spend about $4 million to print and mail educational materials about several efforts to change the state constitution in the November election.
Secretary of State spokesman Dave Druker says his agency is required to mail about 5.2 million pamphlets to Illinois households. They're also required to advertise in newspapers in every county. The information will include the pros and cons of each proposal.

Illinois could have as many as four constitutional ballot measures. The Legislature approved a voter rights and a crime victim rights amendment proposal. Outside groups have proposed two ballot measures that still face legal challenges. One would impose term limits on legislators. The other would change the way the state draws political boundaries.
