COLUMBIA - Shoppers in downtown Columbia could soon be paying a little bit extra for their retail purchases. That's because a half-cent sales tax increase for retail sales in "The District" is on the ballot today.

The only voters who will decide the issue are the 119 who live in "The District" and requested ballots. The ballots must be delivered to the Columbia city clerk by 7 p.m.

Audrain County is also holding a special election with three issues on the ballot. Audrain Public Health Department is asking for a property tax to help with maintenance and operations.

Here's a link to what that tax could mean for residents.

Also on the ballot is a measure to give a public water supply one million dollars to expand and improve its water works system. The third issue is Prop C, which is a tax increase for education funding.

Polling locations in Audrain County are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
