YOUR VOTE COUNTS

ESPLOST

On November 3, 2015, Gwinnett voters will be asked to consider continuing the E-SPLOST (education special purpose local option sales tax).

Please become familiar with what ESPLOST means for the Brookwood Community! Brookwood High School is included on the project list. Find all details at tps://publish.gwinnett.k12.ga.us/gcps/home/public/home/content/general-info/esplost-information.
