Voters in Ellis County have approved a half-cent sales tax.

Of the 3,195 votes cast, 82 percent of voters favored the sales tax increase. Just under 18 percent of registered voters in Ellis County showed up to the polls Tuesday.

The money raised from the tax will be used to build a new building for EMS and rural fire trucks. The rest would make the county jail and courthouse more secure.
