JONESBORO, Ark. – Early voting starts today on the Jonesboro sales tax initiative.
Voters going to the polls today through September 10 in Jonesboro will vote on one issue: whether or not to raise the tax to fund police, fire, and some quality of life improvements. It’s a special election just for this issue.
Location: Craighead County Election Annex
Address: 411 West Jefferson
Polls open: 8:00am | Polls close: 5:00pm
A few minutes out of your day will make a lasting difference in this community. – Team Jonesboro Chairman Scott McDaniel
If passed, the sales tax rate in Jonesboro (8.5%) would increase by one-percent to 9.5%. It would still be lower than most nearby area cities or similarly sized Arkansas cities.
