Gwinnett County citizens voted against joining Metro Atlanta’s Transit Authority Tuesday night. Nearly 92 thousand voters turned up at the polls for the special election and 54 percent of them voted no on the referendum. It would’ve allowed the county to create a 1 percent sales tax for the next 30 years to fund public transit expansion and join into the MARTA system. County officials said that could've created $5.4 billion in funding.
