ELECTION: Paid sick time question takes up space on primary ballot

Updated:

ORLANDO, Fla. —

Orange County voters saw a question about paid sick time on Tuesday's primary ballot even though state law won't allow it.
 
It's interesting because it's really not going to matter one way or the other if the measure passes, according to Channel 9's Kenneth Craig.
 
The ballot question asked voters whether they want private companies to be required to offer paid sick time.
 
In 2012, 50,000 residents signed a petition in support of the measure, but commissioners blocked the issue from the ballot at that time.
           
Since then, a judge ruled commissioners had no legal right to keep it off the ballot.  However, a state law was later passed that prevents governments from requiring sick pay.
 
The bottom line is that no matter how the vote goes on Tuesday, it won't matter.
