Knowledgebase-Sale of Alcoholic Beverages, Including Beer, on Election DayOctober 29, 2008


Ms. Dee Dee Owens, City Recorder
City of Lynnville
151 Mill Street
Lynnville, TN 38472

Dear Ms. Owens

Generally the establishment of hours of sale of beer within the city is a local option. The city may by ordinance prohibit the sale of beer on Election Day or during the hours that the polls are open at its discretion; however, if the city has by referendum approved liquor by the drink, the hours of sale of alcoholic beverages, including beer, is regulated by the State Alcoholic Beverage Commission. The Alcoholic Beverage Commission does not prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages, including beer, on Election Day.

Please call me if you have questions or comments.

Sincerely



Ron Darden
Municipal Management Consultant
