There's rejection for two area communities after voters went to the polls Tuesday.

In Cushing, voters rejected a special one-cent sales tax. Half the money would have been spent to improve city buildings. The other half would have gone into the city's general fund.

McAlester voters rejected a proposition to raise the city's debt limit from $500,000 to $5-million. It failed by a 2-to-1 margin. As it is now, the voters must approve any purchase more than $500,000.
