The people of the 48th Ward voted in a non-binding referendum that the U.S. government should relinquish control in Iraq. The margin was 77 percent to 23 percent, with 66 percent of the precincts counted. Additionally, in a city-wide vote, voters agreed by 5-to-1 ratio that people who make more than $250,000 a year should pay more taxes. The money would go toward education funding and tax relief for property owners.
