 Residents of the City of Duncan are being asked to go to the polls on Tuesday
January 8, 2019 to renew a ½ cent sales tax to benefit the Duncan Area Economic
Development Trust Authority and the City of Duncan.
 The citizens of Duncan approved a five-year 0.5-cent sales tax
in 1994, 1998, 2003, and 2008 to fund DAEDF activities.
During the 2014 sales tax renewal, DAEDF partnered with
the city to have 0.25-cents of the tax go to the city for im-
proving infrastructure and 0.25-cents of the tax remain as a
job creation and economic development fund with DAEDF.
 In 1993, the citizens and businesses of Duncan cre-
ated the Duncan Area Economic Development Foundation
(DAEDF) to promote the development of existing business-
es, attract new businesses, and diversify Duncan’s economic
base. DAEDF has been good stewards of their responsiblity for
over 20 years. With a staff less than half the size of most comparable economic
development foundations and operating on a smaller budget, DAEDF has become
a model that others are trying to emulate.
 The City of Duncan can use its revenue from the sales tax for infrastucture such
as improving city streets, water and electricity distribution.
 When DAEDF began its work in 1993, Duncan was still recovering from the
damaged petroleum industry. With a 10.6% unemployment rate, a single industri-
al park with limited land use, and highways and streets in need of improvements,
Duncan did not look like a city poised for economic growth. However, with the
right people and the right plan, DAEDF became the instrument that would turn
things around for the community.
 The ballot specifies that this renewal and continuation of the current tax will be
in effect for an additional five years.
 Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Lines are possible at peak voting
times. Wait times will likely be shortest at mid-morning and mid-afternoon. Any-
one in line to vote at 7 p.m. will be allowed to cast a ballot.
 AngelaDunagan, Stephens County Election Board Secretary, reminds every-
one that Oklahoma law requires every voter who votes in person at the precinct
Duncan residents to vote on sales tax
polling place or during early voting at the County Election Board to show proof
of identity before receiving a ballot. There are three ways for voters to prove
their
identity under the law (only one proof of identity is required): Show
a valid photo ID issued by federal, state, or tribal government; or
show the free voter identification card issued to every voterby the
County Election Board; or sign an affidavit and vote a provisional
ballot. (If the information on the affidavit matches official voter
registration records, the ballot will be counted after Election
Day.) For additional election information, visit

cently changed, Angela Dunagan, Secretary of the Stephens
County Election Board has reported.Voters in precinct 57 formerly
voted at Graceway Baptist Church at 220 North F Street. Since the Novem-
