TUCSON -- A Tucson doctor is pushing a ballot initiative to reward voters with a grand prize.
It works like this: the Voter Rewards Initiative sets up drawings every two years. Anyone who votes in the general election or primaries is automatically entered into a drawing for a million dollars. The money comes from the unclaimed prize fund of the Arizona lottery.
This is a good idea to increase voter turnout. It'll be interesting to see who comes out against it -- the forces that want to keep voting down.
If it gets on the ballot it'll pass.
