Lots of disgruntled voters in Ill.

COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois voters are voicing frustration at the polls, grousing about corruption, taxes and the state's budget woes.

Tuesday's primary brought 73-year-old retiree Wayne Huff to a polling place at a church in Collinsville in southwestern Illinois. He voted Republican, figuring issues facing the cash-strapped state could open the door for a GOP victory in the November governor's race.

Huff says he doesn't care for Quinn's push to raise taxes.

In the nearby suburb of Troy, 76-year-old retiree and professed independent voter Evelyn Saunders says she and her husband generally don't turn out for primaries.

But they cast their votes Republican, saying it's time for a change in a state where Democrats hold the governor's office and both houses of the General Assembly.
