You’ve read the column. You’ve checked out the U.S. Supreme Court transcript. Now it’s your turn to weigh in on Harris v. Quinn, which tests the contitutionality of employee payments to public-sector unions.

Use the first poll to predict how the court will rule and then weigh in with what you hope will happen. The second poll appears after you respond to the first. After your second vote, you’ll see the polling result for both questions. Mobile users who can’t see the embedded polls can vote by clicking here.
