      Turnout light in Trust Fund referendum

      {} {} 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.
