The Sin Tax vote is almost here. Cuyahoga County residents can cast ballots on whether to extend the tax on cigarettes and alcohol to continue raising money for the city's pro sports venues. It's not a new tax and we get a big return, supporters argue. Vocal opponents say owners are getting a sweetheart deal and patrons should pay for any stadium repairs or upgrades through add-on ticket fees.
