Voters show unhappiness with taxes with voting trends

Indiana voters spoke up against taxes this election by adding property tax caps to the state constitution and refusing property tax increases for schools across the state.  Seventy-two percent of Hoosiers voted to add property tax caps to the state constitution.  On the other hand, 70 percent of those at Madison County polls voted down a property tax increase for the Anderson School Corporation.  Seventy-three percent of voters in the Elwood school district also voted down an increase.  In Randolph County, voters denied a tax increase that would pay for renovations to two school buildings and a fieldhouse for the Randolph Central School Corporation.  Hamilton County school districts seeking property tax increases fared better.  Voters in that county approved tax referendums for the Hamilton Southeastern and Westfield-Washington schools.
