TODAY: Voters to Decide Use Taxes in Some Counties

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Voters go to the polls in some Missouri counties today. There is a mix of issues, but one appears on a handful of ballots.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Voters go to the polls in some Missouri counties today.  There is a mix of issues, but one appears on a handful of ballots.   It's a local use tax on purchases made out of state, such as over the internet, and is equal to the local sales tax charged per county.   See the list of ballot issues, per county, below.

In Greene County, commissioners estimate $3 million a year could be raised by charging the tax on internet purchases.  It would not be charged on any purchases made in Greene County or Missouri - only out of state.

Also in Greene County, voters in two precincts will have a new polling place next Tuesday.  Greene County Clerk Richard Struckhoff says registered voters of precincts 31-A and 31-B will now vote at Springfield Bible Church, 2145 E Grand.
The new voting location is less than a block away from the old site on East Grand.  Nearly 2,300 red, white and blue voter ID cards were mailed to the affected voters two weeks ago, Struckhoff said.

Greene County is one of several counties voting on a use tax.  Struckhoff says he expects voter turnout to be low, somewhere between 10 and 15%. 
Read the Greene County ballot language. 

Polls open at 6am and close at 7pm.
