Early voting begins Tuesday, February 2nd and continues through Monday, February 8th for the ARTS+HISTORY tax supporting the Arkansas Arts Center, the Arkansas Military Museum and MacArthur Park. It will be held in the Pulaski County Regional Building, 501 W Markham, from 8 am-5pm, excluding weekends.
This is a 2% tax increase on hotel rates, which would raise, by bond issue, $37.5 million dollars. Those funds will be matched by private donations to make improvements at the Arts Center, renovations to the Military Museum, and update landscaping in MacArthur Park.
The LWVPC doesn't have an official position on this, but we always support the right for people to vote on issues that effect their city and state. The regular election day is Tuesday, February 9th.
