Fairgoers can let their opinions be known on a number of issues, including abortion, recreational marijuana use, tax credit for funding private school scholarships, taxes for transit, firearm background checks and felon voting rights.

Poll results are scheduled to be on the House website Sept. 3, the day after the fair closes.
