Alcohol sales will not be allowed in Lexington from 6 a.m.-6 p.m., Tuesday, May 20, when polls are open.

democracywhiskeysexyAce-288x300In 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 Lexington, the Urban County Council — must repeal the ordinance banning sales.

“It’s too late to make this change for the May 20 primary. Alcohol sales will not be allowed Tuesday when the polls are open,” said Susan Straub, city spokeswoman. “But the Council has time to change it before the November election.” The Council has put the issue into a committee to study it.

To vote in the 2014 primary, citizens must have been registered by April 21, 2014. To vote in the general election on November 4, citizens must register by October 6, 2014.
