While there won’t be many local decisions on Tuesday’s ballot, there will be plenty of statewide offices in the hands of voters for the general election.
In Jackson County, voters will decide if they want another round of Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST), which could potentially collect $47.5 million over six years. If approved by voters, the penny sales tax would give Jackson County an estimated $33.7 million, with its nine cities splitting a total of $13.7 million.
Also on the ballot will be unopposed fire district seats for Jackson Trail, South Jackson, Plainview, West Jackson and Nicholson.
A called election for contested races in the Arcade and Harrisburg fire districts, whose ballots inadvertently listed the wrong candidates, will be Nov. 30, a judge decided on Tuesday.
