AUGUSTA, Ga. – Early voting begins today in a couple of local special elections: one over the newest SPLOST package in Richmond County and a vote to fill a City Council seat in Grovetown.
Election Day is March 16 for both.
If voters in Richmond County decide to move forward with the SPLOST 8 package, it would put about $250 million toward city and county improvements. They range from upgrading the James Brown Arena to funding infrastructure and economic development.
