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.
