completed today asked voters in the northwestern part of Sherwood, Jacksonville and a small area in the Bayou Meto area if they approved on-premise sale of alcohol
in currently dry areas.
Based on early voting, all three areas responded favorably to leaders' call for restaurant alcohol sales as an economic tool.
The early vote:
Defunct Gray 54 Township (Jacksonville)
Defunct Gray 56 Township (Sherwood)
Defunct Precinct 614 (Bayou Meto-Kellogg Valley)
I'll try to check back later for the final.
UPDATE: with about two-thirds of the vote counted both Jacksonville and Sherwood proposals are receiving more tha 80 percent of the vote. The small, less populated Bayou Meto area is close, 42-38 in favor
UPDATE: Final vote shows big wins in Jacksonville and Sherwood but a 43-42 loss in the small rural area. Looks like the last five votes turned the tide.
