Huntsville voters are heading to the polls Tuesday for a special election.

The election is asking voters to support changing the wording of a tax law from 1916. Officials say it needs to be updated.

Mayor Tommy Battle clarified this is not a new tax. It is meant to reaffirm a 15.5 mills property tax. That money supports Huntsville schools.

Battle also emphasized how important the money is for the school district.

Polls opened Tuesday at 7 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m.
