Greene Co. votes to allow beer, light wine sales

Posted: Updated:
GREENE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Greene County voters decided Tuesday to allow the sale of beer and light wine in the county limits.

Late Tuesday night, election officials said they had counted 3150 votes for the referendum and 2645 against turning the county "wet." Affidavit and absentee ballots have not yet been counted, but officials said there weren't enough to swing the outcome.

Currently, 36 of Mississippi's 82 counties do not allow the sale of beer and wine.
