Murray Votes Go Wet

Almost 12 years after liquor by the drink was legalized in Murray, the city’s voters decided to go wet on Tuesday. A total of 3,931 voted in Tuesday’s local option election, with 2,109 – or about 53.65 percent – answering “yes” to the question, “Are you in favor of the sale of alcoholic beverages in the City of Murray, Kentucky?” No votes totaled 1,822, which amounted to about 46.35 percent. The results obtained from the Calloway County Clerk’s Office are still unofficial and will have to be certified.
