A Charleston Gazette poll says Amendment 1 on the November 5th ballot is in trouble, mostly because voters do not understand the proposal. The poll said three-quarters of those answering said they are undecided.

Polling experts said voters who say they are undecided are likely to vote no.

Forty-six states use the Amendment One proposal as a tool for local economic development, allowing cities and counties to sell bonds to pay for an economic development project.

The amendment does not raise taxes, with extensive safeguards to make sure citizens are protected.

Citizens are in no way obligated for any of the costs for development projects.

A divergent group of support comes from union leaders, business people and elected officials, which they describe as a tool to help local communities.
