How to determine an inconsistent liquor status:
- In 1933, voters in Precinct ‘C’ voted against the repeal of prohibition. There has never been another local liquor option vote on any question(s) held in Precinct ‘C’
- Precinct ‘C’ is wet for the on-premise and off-premise sale of beer, wine and mixed beverages.
- In 1935, voters in Precinct ‘D’ voted against the sale of ALL beverage alcohol including beer. There has never been another local option vote on any question(s) held in Precinct ‘D.’
- Precinct ‘D’ is a dry precinct.
- In 2005, the board of elections re-drew the precinct lines affecting Precincts ‘C’ and ‘D.’
- As a result of board realignment of precincts, a portion of the former dry Precinct ‘D’ is now a part of the new Precinct ‘C’ (labeled “Area C-1”). Area C-1 remains dry while the rest of the new Precinct ‘C’ is wet for the on/off-premise sale of beer, wine and mixed beverages.
- The newly aligned Precinct ‘C’ has an ‘inconsistent liquor status’ as it relates to the on/off-premise sale of beer, wine and mixed beverages.
- A petitioner could place a ‘limited effect local liquor option’ question on the ballot in order to authorize the on/off-premise sale of beer, wine and mixed beverages in Area C-1 or a question to authorize the off-premise only sale of beer, wine and mixed beverages. This election would be voted upon by all registered voters in the New Precinct C, but the results of the election would only affect Area C-1.
