(KSL News) Recent poll results show the controversial Referendum 1 will not pass. Despite those numbers, supports of school vouchers were out in full force Saturday night.

Representatives from Parents for Choice in Education stood outside the EnergySolutions Arena wearing signs and handing out fliers.

The group members say they believe the voucher program could still pass, and they will continue work until Tuesday to gain voter support.

On October 17, 2007, KSL 5 Eyewitness News aired a report evaluating the truth of certain claims made in recent political advertisements. One portion of this report evaluated ads being aired by both proponents and opponents of Referendum 1. In the story, KSL took no position for or against Referendum 1, and no position either for or against Referendum 1 was intended to be implied by the story. Recently, an organization that supports Referendum 1 sent out a direct mail flier quoting portions of KSL's news story as support for that organization's views about Referendum 1. KSL believes that the flier implies that KSL itself produced, or was at least involved in producing, the flier. This is not the case.

Indeed, the KSL Editorial Board has aired an editorial stating that it is opposed to Referendum 1. KSL strongly encourages all citizens to carefully and independently research this and other political issues before casting their votes at the polls.
