TRUSSVILLE — Voter turnout was 34 percent in Tuesday’s property tax referendum in Trussville.
Voting for the seven-millage increase that will fund two elementary schools were 2,812 people, while 1,935 voted against the increase. That totals 4,747 votes cast from among 13,788 eligible voters in Trussville.
For the March 2010 property tax increase vote, voter turnout was 41 percent. There were 4,939 votes cast from among 12,009 eligible voters. The increase was overwhelmingly voted down.
In the municipal election of the mayor and Trussville City Council in August 2012, only 2,668 out of 12,857 eligible voters voted. That equates to just 21 percent.
