SPRINGFIELD -- Is Illinois corrupt? According to a new poll, most voters think so.

For the Good of Illinois Political Action Committee surveyed 500 people statewide, questioning if corruption is a problem here in the land of Lincoln. 94% said yes, while 78% felt it was a big problem, and the other 17% say not so much.

The PAC hopes voters remember the issue when they go to the polls in November. It says two of the biggest ways to combat corruption include adding more financial transparency and conducting more audits.
