Three counties in North Georgia will ask voters today to renew penny sales taxes meant for education.
Catoosa, Murray and Walker counties have the education special purpose local option sales tax - ESPLOST for short - on ballots today.
Early voting ended Friday, so voters who care to vote on the taxes can do so at local polling places. Georgia law requires 50 percent plus one vote for the measures to be approved.
County school leaders say the taxes are sorely needed for building and capital-improvement projects.
