Some 27,000 Boeing machinists will cast two ballots today in a contract vote that could cost the plane maker up to $100 million a day and delay deliveries of the 787 Dreamliner. Workers will first vote whether to accept Boeing's latest offer, then cast a separate vote on the question of a strike. Although the contract can be rejected by a simple majority, a two-thirds vote is required for a strike.
