Sale of Alcoholic Beverages, Including Beer, on Election Day
MTAS was asked about the sale of alcoholic beverages, including beer, on election day.
Knowledgebase-Sale of Alcoholic Beverages, Including Beer, on Election DayOctober 29, 2008Ms. Dee Dee Owens, City RecorderCity of Lynnville151 Mill StreetLynnville, TN 38472Dear Ms. OwensGenerally 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.SincerelyRon DardenMunicipal Management Consultant
