Election today

A sign greets voters at the Pontotoc County Agri-Plex Tuesday morning.

Pontotoc Technology Center’s special election will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. today.

Voters who live within the Tech Center’s district will go to the polls today to decide whether the school should increase its mill levy from 2 to 5 mills. If the measure passes, homeowners whose home is valued at $100,000 would pay an additional $33 per year in property taxes.

Polls are open until 7 p.m.
