Looks like those of us who wanted to vote yes may have to wait longer. I heard that the petition was not valid because many of the names were not eligible.

From what I heard on the news, and if I understand it correctly, the 500 or so were deemed not eligible because they weren't registered to vote in the last election? Doesn't make sense. By that logic, anyone who wasn't registered to vote prior to the presidential election would not have been allowed to vote in 2008's election.

I hope someone can help me understand this or fill me in on what I'm missing...

Im just guessing here but....

Since its a city ordinance that means only city residents can vote on it. I imagine that the only way to prove that those signatures were from actual residents was to check them against voter registration records. Otherwise anyone could sign the petition and claim to be a resident.

Phil is correct. It has nothing to do with them not being registered to vote in the last election. It has to do with them not being city residents. Apparantly the petition was signed by several county residents as well as some who didnt even live in calloway at all. I imagine it will be tried again... soon... and we can listen to Phils rants about not wanting it passed again. I will take that drink though when all is said and done Phil.

SO an 18yr can vote on an issue they can't even partake in? If all the lazy kids around here would register to vote the shit would pass easily.

Alcohol should be banned nationally actually. There is no need for it. There are regulations on tobacco, to the extent that there is no flavor put into cigarette, eventually the media and the government will make the argument that alcohol kills...and it does.

Alcohol has no place in Murray or the USA, if you can justify alcohol and tobacco having to be in the country, go right ahead and start convincing.

If you can lower yourself to say that we in the USA need alcoholic beverages, you are WEAK and lack self worth. I can live without it and the hardships it brings, the people it has killed, and the families that it has torn apart...that alone should be cause for banning of alcoholic beverages.

There is just no need for it...its plain silly...grow up people and argue about something worth while.
