Special election set for Feb. 19, 2019

Lee County will hold a special election on Feb. 19 to renew special ad valorem/property taxes benefitting local schools and the Lee County Youth Development Center (LCYDC). These are NOT new taxes. These are renewals of existing taxes. Auburn residents will consider renewing four taxes:

  • 1 mill countywide (or 10 cents on each $100), which is divided between the three school districts in Lee County—Auburn City Schools, Opelika City Schools and the Lee County School Board.
  • 4 mill countywide (or 40 cents on each $100), which is divided between the three school districts in Lee County—Auburn City Schools, Opelika City Schools and the Lee County School Board.
  • 3 mill District 2 (or 30 cents on each $100), which benefits Auburn City Schools.
  • 1 ½ mill Juvenile Law Enforcement (or 15 cents on each $100), which benefits neglected, delinquent and dependent children through supporting the efforts of the LCYDC.

No new taxes are contemplated in this election. The vote simply renews the existing appropriation of funds that go toward our school systems and the LCYDC, and voting yes on Feb. 19 will ensure these funds continue to be allocated.

Since this is a county election, not a City election, you can find information about your polling place at myinfo.alabamavotes.gov. Please note that Auburn residents may have different polling places for this county election than for your local municipal election last fall.
