Turnout light in Trust Fund referendum

Posted: Updated:
    State election leaders say the turnout for Alabama's single-issue election is light.
    Voters are deciding whether to take $437 million out of a state trust fund to help balance the state General Fund budget for the next three years.
    Pike County's Probate Judge says turnout there could end up between 10 and 13 percent.
    Election workers in other counties say turnout picked up when the rain stopped, but it's still going to be small.
    Montgomery County is an exception. Turnout could end up being 25 to 30 percent.  That may be the result of Montgomery being the capital and people being concerned about cuts to state jobs and services.
