But first, a Toast!
For the first time, alcohol sales will be allowed in Lexington while the polls are open because of an ordinance change approved last month by the Urban County Council.
Lexington’s Urban County Council voted to repeal the ordinance banning Election Day alcohol sales in Fayette county.
Vice Mayor Linda Gorton said, “It was an outdated law, and it’s costly to the alcohol industry. Now our businesses can function just like any other day.”
The ban was a holdover from the Prohibition era when saloons sometimes served as polling places.
(In the 2013 legislative session the state passed a statute allowing local communities to decide whether they want to allow the sale of liquor on Election Day. To make the change the local governing body — in this case, Lexington, the Urban County Council — was able to vote to repeal the ordinance banning sales.)
To vote in the general election on November 4, citizens must have been registered by October 6, 2014.
