Voters in Little River County have a special election coming up in September. The
Public Policy Center partnered with the Little River County Extension Office on producing
a fact sheet explaining the Sept. 10 special election.
Voters will decide three ballot measures:
The two taxes, if approved by voters, would increase the county's sales tax rate from
2.25% to 2.875%. The bond debt would be paid off with money collected from the 0.375%
temporary tax. The county could also use revenue from the 0.25% tax to repay bonds.
If approved by voters, both taxes would start being collected in January 2020.
Early voting starts Sept. 3, 2019 and ends Sept. 9, 2019 at the Election Center, located
at 349 N. 3rd St. in Ashdown. The election is Sept. 10, 2019. Little River County
voters can check their voter status or find out where they’re supposed to vote on
Election Day by calling the Little River County Clerk’s Office at 870-898-7208. You
can also check your voter registration status online at www.voterview.ar-nova.org.
People who live in Little River County and are registered to vote are eligible to
vote in this special election.
With the revenue from these taxes and bond issue, Little River County officials propose
to build, equip, operate and maintain new jail and law enforcement facilities, including
a jail, communications center, sheriff's office and administrative offices.
Download the fact sheet here or stop by the Little River County Extension Service Office at 302 N. Main St. in Harrisburg for a copy.
