Baldwin County voters approved Tuesday an extension of the current special purpose local option sales tax.
The vote was 1,171 in favor, to 446 ballots cast against the measure. That’s a victory margin of just over 72 percent.
The tax is expected to raise about $40 million over six years.
Included in a host of projects is $4.8 million for renovation of the Baldwin County Courthouse and $7.8 million to build a courthouse annex.
The annex would house non-court services such as voter registration and elections offices.
