Tuesday is election day. Do you plan to vote?

Voters statewide Tuesday, May 5, 2015, will decide the fate of Proposal 1, a plan to raise funding for roads through creation of a tax on wholesale gas and diesel. If passed, the sales tax would no longer by charged on gas or diesel. To offset the loss of revenue by that change, the sales tax would be increased to 7 percent with funds going to schools and local governments. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Tuesday. Do you plan to vote?
