Community Facility” Local Option Election Overview
Process Includes ONLY Local Option Petition Form 5-S


If you’ve determined a local liquor option election is necessary and decided the best way to pursue the election is through a precinct wide vote to allow any and all permit holders located in your precinct to benefit from the local liquor option question, the steps below will guide you through the filing of the local option petitions with your local board of elections.

Keep in mind that while all Local Option Petition Forms are available here, ONLY your local board of elections can provide you with an up-to-date list of registered voters, precinct map, and the required number of signatures necessary to qualify the local option issues for the next available ballot. Pursuing a question which affects all permit holders or potential permit holders within a single precinct makes sense IF more than one business has decided to pool resources and attempt to gain the required privileges as a team. The outcome of the local liquor option questions included in Petition Process 1 will affect all businesses equally. Commercial developers oftentimes pursue local liquor options on a precinct wide basis to ensure the entirety of their development project is ‘wet’ for a variety of future tenants that are yet unnamed.

Precinct-Wide local liquor options are also used to stall commercial development projects by removing liquor sales privileges in otherwise wet areas, and by neighbors wishing to “clean-up” their neighborhoods by voting to stop liquor sales at the corner carry-out, state agency store, or neighborhood pub.
