A Yuma County Jail Sales Tax Continuation measure was on the May 17, 2011 ballot in Yuma County.

This measure was approved

  • YES 8,038 (60.94%)Approveda
  • NO 5,151 (39.06%)[1]

This measure sought to continue the current sales tax which goes towards funding the county jail which is set at half a cent. Although it does not expire until 2015, county officials wanted to renew it early so there would not be a worry in a few years time. The tax was originally approved in 1995 and goes towards funding general operations and maintenance costs of the jail facilities.[2]
