Early voting set to begin
Lincoln Parish residents will be asked to vote in the second election in as many months as early voting on three millage tax renewals and one sales tax proposal.
Two of the millage tax renewals are for the Lincoln Parish School Board. One is a parishwide tax of 10.5 mills. One mill is equal to $1 of tax per every $1,000 of real estate value above the $75,000 homestead exemption amount.
The parishwide tax is restricted for use on purchasing textbooks, instructional materials and school buses; constructing, operating and maintaining school buildings and facilities; offsetting reductions in federal and state school funding; funding mandated federal and state programs and funding employee and retiree health insurance.
