Lincoln Parish voters will head to the polls Saturday to cast their ballot on three parishwide tax renewals that generate more then $8 million over a 10-year period for public schools. Polls are open from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday. Voters must bring photo identification. The three parishwide property taxes generate more than $8 million over a 10-year period for public schools, said school system Business Manager George Murphy. Revenue from the millage helps finance construction, technology, salaries and other general operating expenses. The current mileages expire in 2018 and 2019.
