On July 31, voters will head to the polls to decide whether or not to impose an additional 1 percent sales tax on every purchase made for the next 10 years. Gwinnett County is in the metro Atlanta District and Walton County is in the Northeast Georgia district. The proceeds from this tax will fund a specified list of transportation projects with some left over for discretionary spending for local municipalities.
