Valdosta - Early voting began today to extend the Education Special Purpose Local Options Sales Tax in Valdosta and Lowndes County.

Over the last 10 years the tax generated millions of dollars to renovate and replacing current school facilities. 
"A lot of the items we are able to purchase frot he SPLOST funds we can offset that with keeping the millage rate low. Lowndes County and Valdosta schools probably has one of the lowest millage rates in the state of Georgia," said Valdosta City Schools Superintendent Sam Allen.

If extended, Valdosta City Schools hope to raise 48 million dollars over the next five years that will go towards replacing three elementary schools.

Early voting will take place today through Friday at the Board for Elections from 7:00AM to 7:00PM. The regular vote will start Tuesday September 19.
