Video: Voters Have Their Say
TSPLOST and the chance to help shape the Cherokee County Board of Education compelled these residents to vote in today's general primary.
And based on interivews with some residents, that's what drove voters to precincts across Cherokee today for the general primary.
Defeating TSPLOST brought 77-year-old Harrison Williams to the polls at Grace Church in Canton.
"That's a tax that I will have to pay and never see," he said. "If anybody 65 and over is voting for it, they might never see it."
Over at Canton's Sixes Elementary, 50-year-old Renea McGill voted against the controversial transportation sales tax.
"We've just been taxed enough," said McGill, who voted with her 21-year-old daughter. "I don't think that's necessary."
Watch what Williams, McGill and others had to say.
