Lancaster County voters said yes to a new sales tax that will help pay for construction of a new courthouse.
According to unofficial results, 16,299 voters voted "yes" for the tax, while 11,386 voted against it. The tax will add 1 cent to Lancaster County's 7 percent sales tax.
The county is expected to begin collecting the tax in May 2009. It will be collected for no longer than seven years to pay off bonds used to build the courthouse. Officials estimate that a new courthouse and parking garage will cost $33 million.
