Birmingham News article on proposed sewer referendum quotes Ed Still

The Birmingham News has published an article quoting Edward Still on the legality of holding an advisory referendum on the sewer bond crisis. Jefferson County Probate Judge Alan King has asked the state attorney general if it is legal to hold an advisory referendum.

The Birmingham News called Ed Still and asked his opinion.

Ed Still, a Birmingham lawyer who specializes in voting law, said Jefferson County's advisory vote "should not go forward unless they make sure it's legal to hold this referendum."

"Absent some odd decision from a court, I think the county is just foreclosed from holding this referendum. Somebody will bring a lawsuit," he said.

Some voters may also be confused about the complexity of the questions, Still said.

"There are some questions in there that looks like graduate school work to me," he said. "It uses words that are not in the vocabulary of everyday people."
