GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. - Voters in Graves County will head to the polls on November 12 to vote on a proposed tax hike.

The vote comes after residents submitted a petition last week.

County Court Clerk Barry Kennemore validated 1,743 signatures on Saturday, which is more than the minimum 10 percent mandated by law.

The group Graves County Citizens Against School Tax filed the petition last Friday. The Board of Education voted Tuesday to proceed with the vote.
