All they have to do is punch yes in the box next to Measure M. Yes, if enough people favor the measure, as they should, the sales tax will be increased by a half-cent for a period of 20 years.

But when the festivities formally end Tuesday and the county takes its first steps towards the bicentennial celebration in 2089, you must wonder what the county will be like then.
