Woodruff County Ballot Issue Voter Guide Available

by Kristin Higgins and Leigh Ann Bullington - July 17, 2017

Voters in Woodruff County have an election August 8, 2017. They will be voting on three county-wide sales tax measures and a bond issue. The Public Policy Center and the Woodruff County office of the Cooperative Extension Service have created a voter guide to answer basic questions about the issues. 

What’s on the ballot?

  • 0.375% Sales and Use Tax for Jail and Law Enforcement Purposes
  • Jail and Law Enforcement Facilities Bonds and 0.5% Sales and Use Tax
  • 0.125% Sales and Use Tax for Economic Development Purposes

Why are these issues on the ballot?

A sales tax and related bond issue must be approved by voters. At a meeting on May 15, 2017, the Woodruff County Quorum Court voted to place these measures before the voters.

With three ballot issues to decide your five minutes in the voting booth might fly by. Go prepared by reading the 2017 Woodruff County Ballot Issues Voter Guide.

The voter guide summarizes the ballot issues and includes a worksheet you can take with you to help remember how you wanted to vote on each issue. You can pick up a copy of the guide at the Woodruff County Extension office in the courthouse annex or download a digital copy at our website.
