UPDATED: Roanoke election tie means no liquor sales
Without counting three additional provisional votes, the measure to allow liquor sales would have been voted down.
After counting three provisional votes, the very close Roanoke liquor sales election was tied up, 790 to 790. Without the additional votes, the measure would have been voted down. The city will now recount the votes, but the DMN article announcing this development is "unclear" as to what would happen if the vote remains tied. Anyone? Anyone?
UPDATE: The recount somehow revealed two less votes, but still resulted in a tie -- 789 to 789. That means that there will be no liquor stores in Roanoke, at least not until the next election.
