Murray says yes to alcohol, Marshall says no
MURRAY, Ky. — Two communities faced a big decision as they headed to the polls for Tuesday's special election. The result was mixed in votes to expand alcohol sales.
In Marshall County, voters decided against alcohol sales with 53 percent voting against and 47 percent voting in favor. The unofficial tally there was 6,906 voting no to 6,211 voting yes.
Meanwhile, Murray approved alcohol sales, with 2,109 voting in favor of the measure, and 1,822 opposed.
Murray already allowed the sale of alcohol by the drink. The vote Tuesday will expand to packaged alcohol sales.
Meanwhile, Marshall County is a dry county and will remain so after voters rejected the ballot mesure.
