“It’s not been very busy,” she said, but those who have voted have not let the rain stop them.

The referendum is to be held Thursday, Oct. 1. If approved, the measure would increase the wheel tax to $50 which would allow funding for a new LHS and to buy property for a future replacement building for WHS.

As written, the wheel tax would drop back to $25 once the debt is retired on a new LHS and the property for a new WHS.

Early voting continues now through Saturday, Sept. 26. You may vote at the Wilson County Election Commission on East Main Street in Lebanon, at the Mt. Juliet Community Center in Charlie Daniels Park in Mt. Juliet and at the Watertown Community Center in Watertown. Polling places are open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., Saturday.

All 36 precincts will be open to vote in the referendum on Thursday, Oct. 1. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

For more information, call the Election Commission at 444-0216.
