MAYFIELD, Kentucky — Voters in a western Kentucky county are deciding whether to allow packaged alcohol sales.
The Paducah Sun (http://bit.ly/1OMl1qZ ) reports that Graves County residents are voting today in a local option election.
The election comes about two months after the group Vote Graves Wet 2015 announced that it had collected 2,373 certified signatures on its petition supporting alcohol sales. That total was 152 more than the 2,221 that were needed to hold a local option election.
The Mayfield Golf and Country Club is currently the only restaurant in the county allowed to sell liquor by the drink. Residents in the area passed a referendum to enable that in 2004.
Wet campaigns in Mayfield have been defeated in 1992, 1983 and 1934.
