A new proposed change to the Georgia constitution, dubbed "Amendment 5" could allow some areas of the state to decide where their existing one-cent sales tax goes.

And it will really only impact a few places in the state since most cities or counties only have one school system. But in around 20 counties around the state, there are also city or independent school systems. Sometimes those different schools disagree on splitting tax money.

An election would give the people an option to decide how to divvy up the cash. Election day is Nov. 6 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
