Sumner County residents took to the polls and voted against an increase in wheel tax on Tuesday.
The referendum previously failed earlier this year.
If passed, the cost to renew tags would have increased by $25 in an effort to help fund education in the county.
In August, Sumner County schools were closed while the Board of Education and the County Commission went head-to-head over funding.
Finally after an ongoing battle, a budget agreement was reached.
If passed the referendum would have guaranteed the funds would go to the school's budget and would not be used for any other purpose.
