Wet Wins in Murray; Marshall Stays Dry
The City of Murray and Marshall County held separate local option elections today. Murray, a city that allows liquor by the drink sales, asked residents to vote on whether or not to expand alcohol sales to allow package liquor. Marshall County residents voted on whether or not to allow alcohol sales in package stores and restaurants.
Uncertified results are: Murray votes to go wet. Marshall County will stay dry.
