BENTON COUNTY, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Unofficial results are in for two special elections in Benton county.

As of now, 90% of voters in Garfield are in favor of extending the city’s 1/2% sales tax increase.

On the ballot for Pea Ridge, there was a 1% sales tax increase, and a $5.8 million street improvement bond being proposed.

Both issues are likely to pass, with a little more than 50% of the vote.
