That's a shame it didn't go. You'd think, sitting there right next to Richmond all those years, and now they have Manchester to the south selling AND Owsley county. What are they accomplishing staying dry?
I bet many in Irvine are holding their heads in shame thinking poor little Owsley county got alcohol sales legalized where they could not.
3 more years, it'll pass next time!
We're working on a city-only vote for now. If we can prove that something Jesus himself was recorded drinking in the Bible along with all of his followers does not cause the county to devolve into madness, then the county vote may just pass as well.

I don't know how or if a county wide local option election in Pulaski Co. would affect Somerset. If the local option election happened to fail in Pulaski Co. I would hope that Somerset would still keep its wet status. I just don't how that works.

I do know that when Floyd Co. went wet in 1982 it was the county that carried the wet status. Four of our five magesterial districts voted wet by fairly substantial margins but Magesterial district 1 which includes Prestonsburg voted to keep the county dry but we carried Prestonsburg into the modern age and now they are glad we did.

On the other hand Pike Co. voted to stay dry in 1982 but the city of Pikeville voted by a large margin to go wet so in 1983 the citizens of Pikeville got a wet-dry election and sure enough Pikeville voted wet by a substantial margin.

Basically if the city has never specifically voted to be wet, the county voting to be wet would automatically make the entire thing wet. However if a county vote fails, a city vote would make just the city wet.

If the city voted to become wet already, a county vote will not affect it whatsoever; the state law essentially says that each subdivided section of the state (counties, and even individual precincts perhaps) can vote to overturn the wider area's decision for their specific geographical section.

In other words if Pulaski votes dry, then the county is dry. The city stays wet since it already voted and the smaller one wins out here.

Any word on the county-wide petition? There was an article in the paper two weeks ago saying they had far more than the required number of signatures.

Have they turned the petition in yet?
