Polling Places Report Steady Voter Turnout in Pike County
Polling places around Pike County are reporting a steady turnout for Tuesday's vote on a new constitutional amendment which would take $437 million out of a state trust fund to help balance the state General Fund for three years.
The largest box in Troy, the National Guard Armory, had seen more than 150 voters before noon, and almost 400 before 5:00. "We've had a pretty good turnout. It's been steady, which is a good thing," said poll worker James Johnson. He told CBS 8 News the crowd was especially good for a one-issue ballot, which normally draws fewer people.
Polls remain open across Alabama until 7:00 P.M.
