Polls are open until 7 o'clock tonight across Missouri. KTTN FM 92.3 will have election results after 7 o'clock.

By state law, some entities will not have an election today because they had the exact number of candidates file for the positions that were open. That is not the case for the towns and cities which must hold an election even if a candidate is Unopposed.

Ballots throughout Grundy County will have a proposal to impose a county use tax on out of state purchases at the same rate as the county sales taxes: one and a half percent. Patrons of the Laredo school district decide whether to maintain a special levy of one dollar and 40 cents for another five years. The Spickard road district votes on whether to continue an additional levy of 35 cents for the next four year period.

Ballots throughout Sullivan county have a proposal to renew the one half of a percent county sales tax. It would last ten years for capital improvements at Sullivan County Memorial Hospital in Milan. Newtown voters decide on continuing a 30 cent tax levy for general purposes. The town of Mercer votes on a one cent city sales tax.

Gallatin votes on a sales tax of one half of a percent for a ten year period for capital improvements. The village of Jameson votes on an additional tax levy of 20 cents for a
four year period for general purposes. Winston votes on continuing a 30 cent street tax
for the next three years. The city of Hamilton votes on having a local use tax equal to
the city sales tax of two percent.

Brookfield votes on the proposal continuation of a one quarter cent city sales tax to fund community revitalization improvements for another four year period.

Ballots across Linn County include a proposal to continue the one half cent county sales tax for five years for streets, roads, and bridges and other capital improvements.

School issues in the area include Bethany, Cameron, and Marceline.

South Harrison patrons vote on a 60 cent increase in the school levy ($4.2513) for 20 years to finance an addition to the middle school in Bethany and meet additional operating costs. A majority needed to pass.

Patrons of the Cameron school district vote on whether to borrow money that would provide funds for site development, construction, and furnishing a new middle school; to complete security enhancements of existing facilities; and if money is available, complete other renovations of the facilities. If approved by a four sevenths majority vote, nine and three quarter million dollars worth of bonds would be issued while, officials say, the adjusted debt service levy remains unchanged (at .6897).

There's a similar “no tax increase” ballot issue proposed at Marceline. It asks patrons to borrow whether to borrow four million dollars without increasing the debtservice levy (now .80 cents) Bonds would be used to finance a variety of projects.
