What’s on the ballot?

Connecting to MARTA is the only item on the ballot and voters will be asked to vote yes or no to this question: “Gwinnett County has executed a contract for the provision of transit services, dated as of August 2, 2018. Shall this contract be approved?”

Voting “yes” is a vote to create a new one-penny sales tax to expand MARTA in Gwinnett based on Gwinnett’s plan for transit expansion and its contract with MARTA. The contract includes provisions such as providing control to Gwinnett over funds and spending, requiring funds to be spent to benefit Gwinnett, solidifying Gwinnett’s transit plan, and providing Gwinnett with three seats on the MARTA board.  

Voting “no” would prevent expansion of transit options.
