Early voting to dedicate hamburger tax revenues to the $68.6  million refurbishing of the Robinson Center starts today at the Pulaski County Regional Building at 501 W. Markham, across from City Hall. 

Election Day is Dec. 10; early voting will continue weekdays through Dec. 9.

Robinson opened in 1929 and was last refurbished 40 years ago. The 2 percent advertising and promotion tax will be dedicated to up to $73.5 million in bonds. If voters approve the dedication of the tax — which is not a new tax but an existing one — the center would be closed in July 2014 and work would take a bit more than two years to finish.
