Illinois Primary To Field Many Tax Questions

Posted: Updated:


The Illinois primary election is just one month away and in Rock Island, voters will see three one-percent sales tax questions on the ballot.

The first one would give Rock Island County $11.5-million per year. This money would be distributed to schools in the county.
For example, the Moline school district could get about $3-million a year. The money would only be used to improve school facilities.
Election officials want people to be aware of the issues and come out and vote.

"Your vote is your voice so you should get registered you should get involved in your community, you should know the issues at hand and make your vote count because even with some of the public questions, depending on how people vote this can effect us long term," Rock Island County Clerk Karen Kinney said.
Also on the ballot is another sales tax increase question regarding public safety and the third sales tax question impacts whether or not Rockridge school district will build a new elementary and transportation facility.
